What impressed you positively?

What impressed you negatively?

"the presentation of the program was kind of boring and monotone. the director/teacher (i didn't really pay attention...) was not interesting to listen to and it was too long. i wasn't even listening (i was eating....)" -Posted 05/05/2006 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"both interviewers mostly asked questions to clarify the information that i had put in my autobiographical letter (so be sure to re-read it before the interview). but there were also questions that weren't related to the letter. the interviewers were nice and sympathetic overall. the interviews are supposed to last 30 mins, but mine only lasted 20 mins each. the interviews went well in general." -Posted 05/05/2006 | Report Response
