What are your general comments?

"The interviewer was well prepared to listen and ask specific questions. I don't feel like the interview was canned at all and feel fortunate for the interviewer I had because she gave me some good advice for the future. Also, the school is not generally a great looking school, but there's so much more to the school than that. New Jersey was much different than I thought it would be and the interviewer was from NJ, so she gave me some good insight as to what to expect there." Report Response
