    My first interview was on campus. I talked to an Manager. It was very conversational. Then I got invited for a Super day in NYC. I was put in a hotel overnight. It was three interviews and a presentation on the company. MAKE sure you pay attention in the presentation because a Partner will ask you a question on the 5 sections of an PwC professional. One interview was with a Senior Associate and the other two was with Partners. One Partner plays bad cop. I received an offer 2 hours later via phone.
