What are your general comments?

"Well I was second to last to go, so I had 2 1/2 hrs to walk around the very small campus. There was nothing to do except get more nervous, also sat in a lecture. The Professor had a long pony-tail and was a male. Didn't give a great professional experience. The interviewers didn't seem to personal to me. They weren't until they said do you have anything else to add at the end and I just put in all the stuff I felt like they should know like my strengths and stuff that I thought they would have asked me, but didn't. They did seem pleased when I took initiative, So if they don't seem personal at first just say what your going to say. Gotta fight for your spot!" Report Response
