What are your general comments?

"Great experience, all things considered. The panel interview itself was not bad, but not great. In all honesty, it was more like three separate interviews going on in the same room rather than an interactive experience (there were three interviewers and three interviewees). My main interviewer was a great guy, young, interesting, really chill. But it seemed like he really tried to back each of us into a corner. His questions were at times a bit obscure and impossible to answer. But the students were definitely people I could hang out with, and they obviously have fun." Report Response
