What are your general comments?

"I was asked to come to the admission office at 11:45. I got there at 11:30. We had a tour with 2 first year medical student which was very short, only like 15 minutes. We ate lunch together until 1pm. I had my interview at 3:30 so I had 2 hours to kill. The interview was very casual, getting to know more about you, conversational. However, I was still nervous since this was my first interview. Student life seems less stressful than I thought. Every students I met seem to like UCLA a lot." Report Response
