What are your general comments?

"great. it is what you make of it. if you're nervous and discouraged from the beginning, you'll establish a negative perspective for yourself. however, if you enter the tour and interview with an open mind, it can be a wonderful experience. i honestly think some people exaggerate their experiences on sdn. in reality, i was ready to pee all over myself, but it wasn't as bad as i thought it would be. the group interview is great because it teaches you to work in a group and be perceptive to another person's opinions. most importantly, be yourself and speak from the heart. memorized answers can only take you so far.
