"I'm a non-trad, we discussed how being older, and having done an SMP previously makes me different from other applicants.

Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"My 2nd interview was with a MS4. He had more of a "list" of questions that he wanted to ask me. The 2nd interview was closed file, while the first was open.
