What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview, so it was only stressful in that I hadn't done one yet. The interviews were really conversational and mellow. The interview with the student was blind so it was easy to tell them what you wanted them to hear. The faculty interviewer got to read my personal statement and nothing else, so we mostly talked about that and her research interests. My interview with the Dean was short and I ended up having to rewrite (while he was waiting) the first two sentences in every paragraph of my secondary. Apparently this is the first year the secondary was online and they were having a lot of problems. I suggest taking your secondary responses with you. All in all it was a great school, unfortunately, the surrounding area didn't impress me. " Report Response
