What are your general comments?

"Overall, it was a very positive experience! I felt that I answered every question confidently without any hesitation. I must admit that it was a little difficult to tell how the interview went based on the reaction of my interviewer. When I left I generally had a good feeling, but then I started to think that it could have gone either way. I sent a thank-you letter to my interviewer because I wanted to convey my appreciation for her time and because I was told that it was proper etiquette. It must have gone well though because I was accepted about 2.5 weeks later." Report Response
