What are your general comments?

"Overall experience is great. Low stress. Amazingly, I got accepted in a week. however, during the interview I felt a little bit of a rush by the interviewers. I had to wrap up my answers quickly because another interviewer seemed ready to move on to the next question. I thought the interview was very short( felt like 10 mins) but in fact it was 30 mins. May be because I have a lot to say. SDN questions are very very helpful I thinks they have guideline on what questions to ask. They were filling out the answers on a sheet of typed paper while I was answering their questions. " Report Response
