@TankEngine: Will you please dm me the groupme code?
@TankEngine: can you send me the groupme too pls?
@NotAHoyaSocialClub: so is that a neutral sign, good sign or bad sign that they don't want to interview me again?
@TankEngine: can you send me the groupme code please?
So, is the general consensus that a KIRA interview is a good sign?
