What are your general comments?

"My first interviewer was great. No ethic questions. He seemed genuinely interested in my personal background, family, and asked questions which mostly pertained to issues related to my personal statement. He was really interested in me as an applicant. I was expecting to be interviewed by a student for my second interview, but instead, it was a basic science faculty member along + a 3rd year student. Wasn't prepared for a 2 on 1... Maybe they've caught on to SDN so they are switching formats?" Report Response
