What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview, which is why the stress level is a 3 instead of a 1. It was very relaxed. The school itself is in the middle of nowhere, which has it pros and cons. The students were very friendly and willing to help us in every way. I got the impression that most people had a relatively easy time with their interviews, although one said she was asked to discuss a number of ethics situations, so get your ethical stance straight before you walk in the door. Overall, very positive experience." Report Response
