It was a good review of intern policies without being too heavy, even with a few slightly trickier questions to make you rethink the specifics. Along with that, it of course provides the useful docs I\'ll need for Special Projects. Thank you!

Good info - some of which served as a refresher (from the original Boot Camp).
