What are your general comments?

"I arrived and had a seat in the lobby. We went into a conference room and filled out paperwork. We took a tour and then came back to the conference room where they talk about the curriculum. A staff person will give you an essay question/topic and do take the time to answer the question fully. After that you wait for your interview and are called in. Some people were in the middle of eating so make sure you are prepared if you were first in line." Report Response
