What are your general comments?

"LSU put on a heck of a show. Everyone - students, professors, secretaries, janitors - was friendly. The interviewers seemed genuinely interested in getting to know the applicants beyond what they knew from the AMCAS. The morning was spent on a tour of the campus, then the afternoon was for interviews. It was very relaxed and informal. The admissions staff even provided diet cokes for us while waiting between interviews. Two interviews - one with a prof. and one with a 4th year student - were open-file and they had clearly read the file. The third interview was completely blind. The interviewer was a prof. who had only a blank sheet. He even had to ask my name." Report Response
