What are your general comments?

"I was amazed with how low stress the day was. This was my first interview and I was expecting more. The interviews were very conversational. The interviewers asked really vague/open-ended questions and did not really try to steer the conversation so I could pretty much talk about whatever I wanted. NOTE: The interviews were open file except that the interviewers couldn't see your grades or test scores." Report Response
