What are your general comments?

"Overall, the Mercer interview experience was very laid-back. The students, professors, and office faculty did everything in their power to make sure you had a relaxing day. Surprisingly, my stress level decreased as the day went on. After a morning interview session, we took a tour with 4th year students and then had lunch with current 3rd and 4th years. These students all seemed very happy, and this was a great opportunity for questions. After lunch, we had a second interview and then filled out a psychological survey. Applicants were then free to leave. I was offered an acceptance approximately three weeks after my interview." Report Response
