What are your general comments?

"Overall, I liked this school. One of the members of my panel did not show up until about 5 minutes before my interview ended. The interview itself is very relaxed for a 3 person group (panel) interview. They only have access to your personal statement, so be prepared to talk about whats in it and what else you would like to share thats not in your personal statement." Report Response
