What are your general comments?

"Everyone was unbelievably friendly. It started out with almost three hours of speakers, went on to a tour of the place, and then going through two interviews. In between or after two separate interviews (depending if yours were scheduled back-to-back or not), you needed to go see Security and/or this one administrative officer regarding other paperwork. After everything, they took any and all interested interviewees onto the grounds of Walter Reed to see the medical simulation center, which is an amazing place you simply have to see with your eyes to believe."
