What are your general comments?

"The interview is totally laid back. DO NOT BE NERVOUS! They are very encouraging and it is an honor to even be asked to interview. I would read over this website and pay attention these questions are asked over and over again. You should also not take any questions regarding poor performance personally. Your interviewer has to present you to the committee and is only trying to come up with a defense for poor scores or grades. They are more than likely on your side! Don't be stressed out by the "score talk" it sounds a lot worse than it really is. Oh yeah, have some questions! Good Luck! " Report Response
