What are your general comments?

"Overall the experience was excellent. They were very organized from the hotel pick up to the schedule of the day to the hotel drop-off in time to catch my flight. I was extremely impressed with the campus and facilities and had a great time chatting with my interviewers. Everything you read on SDN about it being conversational is 100% true. Even if they ask you a tough question, just relax, take a breath, and let them listen to your reasoning. Half the time they aren't looking for a "right" answer anyway." Report Response
