What are your general comments?

"The day was pretty good... I was extremely nervous and stressed out, probably because it was my first interview and I was in the middle of midterms, but the people made me feel a little more relaxed. The interview process seemed to take forever.... I was the last one to go, which meant that I sat in the "fishbowl" from 9:30 until I interviewed at 11:30. Waiting for that long made me kind of antsy and even more nervous. Students came by to talk to us about the school and everyone was very friendly. I guess my nervousness didn't really matter because I got accepted." Report Response
