What are your general comments?

"The interviews themselves were very laid back and very conversational. I interviewed with a student and then a member of the admissions committee. Both were very friendly, and we just chatted about things more than them grilling me. I was very relaxed - except possibly the dean question, which totally caught me off guard/stunned me. Otherwise, it was a great, very laid back interview. I just wish I had a realistic shot at getting in :P" -Posted 12/21/2004 | Report Response
