What are your general comments?

"I went to UF for undergrad, so I was somewhat familiar with the facilities. Everything about the day is quite impressive. You have a great opportunity to meet many of the current students. I was also impressed by the faculty and their commitment to the student body. Be prepared for a long day, but try to relax. My interviews were very conversational. Another thing to note, they instruct the interviewers to make it a partially open file interview (AKA don't look at grades and test scores, but look at everything else). One of my interviewers followed that policy. The other just made it a closed file interview." Report Response
