What are your general comments?

"This website helped a lot and calmed my nerves since I knew what to expect. The interviews were very much conversational and interesting. They do ask questions from a standarized list, and my interviewer even said he hated the questions. Try and steer the interviews as more of a conversation and they won't ask too many of those "ethical" standardized questions. And watch for the essay question before lunch, eat a snack during the morning so you aren't starving while writing. " Report Response
