What are your general comments?

"I had one-on-one interviews with a faculty member and a student. The faculty interview lasted 45min and was extremely friendly and conversational. We discussed my history and interests, and found some common ground. The student interview lasted an hour and a half and was also very conversational. My student interviewer was a bit distracted (he seemed to know everyone passing through the cafeteria), but was still very friendly and talkative. I felt I learned quite a bit about the school during that time." Report Response
