What are your general comments?

"It was my first interview and a very relaxed experience. The head of admissions interviews everyone and told us that he chooses people based on whether he "clicks" with them. There's no way you can control that, so the only thing you can do is be yourself and hope for the best. Another faculty interview followed. Then, we had lunch with a student, which was technically the third interview. At the end, a first year gave us a tour of the campus. " Report Response
