What are your general comments?

"I was happy that I chose to do the regional interview. My interviewer was an interesting person, and I very much enjoyed our conversation. He asked challenging questions, but they were thought-provoking and he was very friendly & encouraging. We spent about 2 hours together, and I felt he was able to really get a feel for me as a person in a way that might have been harder at a school-based interview. And, most importantly, I saved money and vacation time... If I get in (please please please)--I will go to the 2nd look weekend and get a better feel for the school." -Posted 01/26/2005 | Report Response
