On-site administration of your program

The two supervisors were helpful, but with them having a lot on their plate, my experience kind of got pushed to the back burner. It was frustrating when all I did was busy week for about the first month. After explaining myself and what I wanted to get out of the experience, they understood and worked to meet my expectations.
