What are your general comments?

"They re-use the same questions, and the interview is blind, so definitely look over interview feedback and take as many questions from it as you can to practice interviewing. Also, take the water they offer you, and bring it in the room. Your mouth will probably get dry (50 minutes is a lot of talking), and it also gives you a good method of stalling to think about answers to questions." Report Response
