What are your general comments?

"Started with an orientation and breakfast, durning which I sat and chatted with about 20 other applicants. We then went off to our prospective interviews. The interview was easy and typical, no hard questions, just "tell me about yourself" questions. The rest of the morning was spent taking a tour and sitting in on a lecture. After lunch, we were free to go. " Report Response
