"Overall, it was a really good interview day. The waiting facilites and the cafeteria they took us too were very nice, especially for a state school. The building is a bit run down, but seems to have up to date equipment. I loved my interview, but I think I just got very lucky - it was like they hand-picked my interviewers and questions just for me." Report Response
