What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing, I was prepared and familiar with the area." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interview was very predictable since almost all the questions asked I had read on SDN. The tour was pointless because there were like 40 people going at the same time and it was impossible to hear, or see (since I'm short). I wish I hadn't applied so late, because my interviewer told me if I had applied earlier, I would have gotten in no problem. She said I will most likely be on the waiting list. :( I already figured that would be the case though." Report Response
