What are your general comments?

"I was a bit apprehensive that my first interview was at my top-choice school. However, the incredibly friendly people(esp Deborah)in the admissions office put me at ease. The relaxed feeling continued with the first interviewer who expressed a great deal of interest in my life, my goals, and my botany degree. We talked more about organic gardening and heirloom tomato varities than about health care issues-for which I was glad. The student interviewer was a bit more forceful in his examination of my credentials. But again, this was a closed file interview so it was more of a conversation" Report Response
