What are your general comments?

"I had three interviewers, two professors and a local veterinarian. For the most part, they said things like, "I see you have experience in calving, tell me more about that." And drew out questions from those topics, like how my quail experience related to Prop 2. I was very nervous just prior to the interview but the relaxed environment and nice interviewers made me calm down. Also, if you plan to fly into the Manhattan Airport, leave plenty of time for delays. The flight to/from MHK was delayed for several hours each time." Report Response
