What are your general comments?

"Start preparing roughly a week ahead. Start with making a list of questions that you expect them to ask. Then answer those questions but with bullet points, not in paragraph form. Then do a mock interview with a couple people to get advice on your answers. Make edits as necessary, and try to make your bullet points short. You eventually want to get down to a couple key words that you're memorizing per question so you have a gist of what you are going to talk about but also sound original. Also, use short anecdotes to support your answers." Report Response
