What are your general comments?

"I loved it. The interviewers really wanted to see how you ticked. they asked simple questions and seem to watch not only wat i said but how i said it. their reactions after i answered questions were also very honest. if i said something they weren't impressed with they would hint it with their facial expressions. Time passes quickly in an interview. make sure you show them who you really are. personality and knowledge and critical thinking. show them how you think through problems (ethics). " Report Response
