How did you prepare for the interview?

"Not much at all. It wasnt my first one so I wasnt as nervous as I had been in the past. All I did really was spend a couple hours the night before reading all of the questions that they typically ask, right off of this website. So dont fret too much, just relax, take a deep breath, lay on ur be or kick up on the couch and just read all the questions that people have posted, there were alot of repeats. And if you do that you'll do great." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I Knew everything I needed to know because I read up on all the do's and donts from this website. However there are a few suggestions I could make for those traveling from a long distance. The comfort INN was a great hotel, I would def recommend it. And I would Def advise people to fly in to kirksville on that litte tiny plane that they offer, it only takes 1 hour, its probably cheaper then gas, and it was completely safe and not scary at all."
