What are your general comments?

"I ended up liking Washington University a lot more than I thought I would. St. Louis is small, but it's a very friendly city and it has all the basics. The students at Wash U were so incredibly happy and close, and so receptive towards interviewees. This is definitely a safe, nurturing environment. The interviews reflect that. It's very casual, very conversational. Don't worry about it. They won't try to scare you in any way." Report Response
