What are your general comments?

"Both interviews were open-file, so quetions were pretty specific to me and the contents of my application. I think that both my interviewers and I got a lot out of out interacts becuase of this. I was more prepared to discuss aspects of my file than to answer more open-ended questions like, "tell me about yourself." Both interviews were really laid back and everyone at the school was genuinely nice. The school was impressive and the students were awesome - I did not expect to enjoy my experince as much as I did that day." Report Response
