What are your general comments?

"My interview went long (2 hours), but most last in between a half hour and an hour. It was incredibly laid-back, and it was pretty much just a get-to-know-you session. This was my first interview, but the format was very stress-free and made the whole experience pretty enjoyable. I got the impression that Case cares a lot for its students and is very receptive to comments/complaints by the student body. Everyone seemed very happy." Report Response
