What are your general comments?

"The first half was like a standardized test (''I am going to read you... good luck'' then it was just me responding to questions and they couldn't give feedback). My interview was early so I got some extra time-- this was great because I felt that the best part of the whole day was chatting with my interviewers and hearing what they thought of the program/location after the official interview was over. I wish everyone had that opportunity, as it made the place seem really great despite the aged facilities." Report Response
