What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That my interviewer was going to ask me biochem questions, heh." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall a great experience. Int#1 was impossible to read. He sat and stared deadpan at me throughout, as if I were talking to myself.. no nodding or anything. He seemed fairly nice other than that. Int#2 busts out with some biochem questions.. but I'm not convinced he expected me to know it. I bet he just wanted to make sure I remembered SOMETHING from biochem/etc. Surprisingly that interview was lower stress than the first. He was very talkative, just had some hard topics.."
