What are your general comments?

"I didn't know interviews could go so well. My last interviewer even walked me to my car and showed me things I may not have seen on the tour. Both interviews were to get to know my personality. I wouldn't call the experience "laid back", but conversational. If you are good with people and can just sit down and talk with someone as if they were an old friend you will fare well. Really try to relax and enjoy yourself. The admissions office staff were great and so was the Dean. I was also glad to hear that students in general are not super competitive there. They seem to be very happy where they are at. I even ran into one at 11:30 the night before my interview while trying to figure out where I should be in the morning. He spoke with me for half an hour giving me advice and answering my questions. I don't think my experience could have been any better." Report Response
