What are your general comments?

"The only thing that stands out besides how friendly the people were, was that one of my interviewers asked me about every single point that I wrote on my application. I was so tired by the first half hour bc it had been only me talking the whole time. So that interview wasn't that conversational. But then after about an hour, he asked me if I had any questions for him. I was so relieved to be able to stop talking and gather my breath. " Report Response
