What are your general comments?

"I was accepted on 09/18/09. The purpose of me writing this is to give glory to God first and to give back to SDN second. God heard my prayers and answered. He deserves all the glory and praise. For the personable, social, and not easily intimidated, a mock interview is not necessary. For those prone to stuttering and / or cannot convey thoughts into speech, practice. Prepare like a gunner but be laid back during the interview. Give an impression you know the field without intimidating the interviewers. If they dodge your questions, move onto another topic. A firm handshake is necessary. Good-looks help too, so tidy up. If you are brave enough, dress to impress but stand out. I personally styled a tan-grey suit, so I was easy to spot among all the other interviewees in black.
