What are your general comments?

"I had a good experience. I got there kind of early so I had to wait a bit to be seen. Once I was told where I would have to meet with my interviewer around 930AM and I would be directed to where I would go. As the time came around, I realized that I had not been told where to go yet. I let the administrative person know and she rushed me to my interviewer's office in the hospital. My interviewer was really nice about the whole thing. We talked for a lot longer than we were supposed too because I was late to the Dean's meeting. It was a bit stressful but the Dean was really nice about me walking in late and told me not to worry about it. Overall, it was a really good experience." Report Response
