What are your general comments?

"Two interviewers, 1 on 1, each for an hour. At first, I thought an hour would be excessive but it was perfect because it allowed me to show the staff my true potential. I interviewed with Ms. Wirta and Dr. Ward, both were absolutely amazing at reducing stress of the interview and reciprocating in the conversation. The interviews were an incredible experience. After the interviews, they reinforced my positive attributes and also gave me advice on improving my negatives. " Report Response
