What are your general comments?

"The group interview was not as bad as I expected. It was really like an individual interview, but with other people around--we didn't really have to interact with the other applicants much. They have your personal statement, and most of the questions came from there. Then we had an individual interview, which was really relaxed, and they also only have your personal statement" -Posted 10/13/2002 | Report Response
