What are your general comments?

"Like I said, Hershey is the cutest town, and parking is free too! The presentation is moderately engaging, but it was kind of awkward interacting with the other interviewees. One interviewer stoically didn't really ask me questions and just summarized my experiences and gave lots of advice, and the other interviewer was pretty intense. It's nice, though, that you are escorted to the interviews, so you can't get lost. Overall, a good experience." Report Response
