What are your general comments?

"Pretty relaxed, really short. I was expecting them to ask "tell us about yourself" as the first question but this never came up. I had to bring that spiel up at the end. Everyone I talked to was in and out in under half an hour. It was really straight forward. The interviewers weren't super friendly at first but we were all laughing by the end of it. The school is great. " Report Response
