What impressed you negatively?

"That there would be such a small amount of interviewees that day(3). Also, I knew ahead of time from the SDN feedback about the possibility of a long waiting period between the tour and interview. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, the interview day was very pleasant, the student tourguides were friendly and helpful, and my interviewer was wonderful.
