Result : Offer
Overall, I am very grateful of my recruter, she was VERY VERY VERY (Yes, three all cap VERYs) responsive, helpful, informative. She often replies me in minutes, longest was probably still less than 24 hrs. Besides hard work I did on my own, I could not have done this without her help. She has kept this stressful and anxious process to the absolute minimum for me. I just wish all other recruiters can be like her.
