What are your general comments?

"Overall this interview was waaaaay more laid back than I had expected. Both of my interviewers were really nice and honestly just seemed to want to get to know me better. One interviewer hadn't read my file and didn't know anything about me, and he spent the first 15 minutes asking me questions. After that, the two interviewers took turns asking me questions. Overall I thought it was a great experience, and now I'm just waiting to hear back!!" Report Response
