What are your general comments?

"I was the last one to interview from the morning group (out of 5 guys). We were there at 8:00AM as instructed and were given the option to fill a form agreeing to have our pictures taken (individual pictures). The interview was more relaxing than the waiting part but it helps if you find something to do or someone to hang with to keep your mind off of it. I seem to connect really well with one of my interviewers. She backed me up on a lot of my reponses. I connected with the microbiology professor from the beginning until the last question. Damn! As for the other one she was nice but caught me off guard with a few comments/questions based on my previous reponses. Choose your words wisely!" Report Response
