What are your general comments?

"The interview was generally smooth. The first interviewer was more curious in my personality whereas the second interviewer asked me more academic questions. I did not get the impression that any of the interviewers were out to get me. However, I do suggest that that you are honest. If an interviewer asked you a question you don't know, tell them the truth, you will surely impress them with your humility and integrity. " Report Response
