What are your general comments?

"The tour started with about 6 of us, then they split the group into two groups of 3 each with a separate interviewer. It was a group interview and she gave us each equal time to answer questions. It was not nearly as cutthroat as other group interviews and was very relaxed. It was an informal interview and the questions were based very largely around the answers we supplied. You really felt like there was no wrong answer and the interviewer was extremely animated which was very refreshing. Such a good experience, I just wish their facilities matched the enthusiasm of the staff. I love the location though, PLENTY of diversity!" Report Response
