What impressed you negatively?

"The directions to one of the interviewer's offies were poorly written and I had trouble finding it, and also one interview ran over because it started late, making me late for my last interview.

What are your general comments?

Questions were drawn mostly from my essays and filled in the blanks about who I am as a person (closed file interviews)." Report Response
