Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The ten questions posted up on SDN for LECOM = No longer used." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The people here are realy polite so it is necessary to keep the answers short. I ran my mouth too long at times, but they will just sit back and listen. I kept waiting for any sign for them to speak up, but they keep good poker faces. This was my first interview. I really liked these people. Highly recommend anyone to check it out if they have a chance. Also, everyone talks to you like you have been already accepted. Even the hotel staff said congratulations like I was already accepted. Will have to answer similiar sounding questions at both two-on-one interviews." Report Response
