What are your general comments?

"Really good day. Sat in conference room for awhile with various speakers. Were given article to read and remember. Got called out individually for interviews -- had read on SDN that the interview is like talking to two stones, but completely not the case -- more speakers. Lunch in the cafe was awkward because everyone knows you are interviewing and gawks/giggles/whispers etc. Two students sat with us and answered questions then took us on tour of building. End of a good day." Report Response
