What are your general comments?

"The applicants trickle in the fish bowl and wait until someone comes to greet everyone. You sit there and various people come in to talk to you. Then, you go on a tour, which includes some outside walking. Then it's time for lunch. The interviews are at the end. Supposedly, the interviewers get to look at your application right before the interview, but my interviewer seemed as if he had looked at mine for a while, as he had a list of notes and questions he wanted to ask me. During one of the presentations, they will tell you the interviewers are supposed to comment on 7 criteria. My interview was less conversational than at other schools, and I found this a little bit intimidating. My interviewer had a list of questions and would shoot them at me one after the other, but my interviewer was very nice. " Report Response
