What are your general comments?

"I was insanely nervous. So nervous that at one point my voice was shaking. This prompted them to ask me, what makes you nervous? I jokingly asnwered, This, this makes me very nervous... the interviewers chuckled, which then made me less nervous. The interviewers weren't trying to intimidate me or make me nervous. In fact, just the opposite; they were trying to make me as comfortable as possible. They were really friendly chill interviewers, really relaxed. The only reason I was so nervous was because it was my first interview. Today is the 19th day after my interview, and I just got accepted!" Report Response
