What are your general comments?

"The day was pretty relaxing. Jefferson only interviews once a week so there were about 25 of us interviewing on the same day. You have a student interviewer, which is really just an opportunity for you to ask them questions and then have a faculty interviewer at the end of the day. There is an optional session you can go to at the very end to ask any final questions. Both of my interviews were very stress-free." Report Response
