What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview so I was nervous. I read this forum before my interview and it made me nervous because of the way the interview was described. It is true that the 2 faculty that are interviewing you will show no expression to your responses during the structured portion of the interview. However, they do smile and nod (they are not completely without emotion.) After the structured part it became more of a conversation. So you should relax, there is nothing to worry about. The most stressful thing for me was just waiting for my turn. Once I was called the stress level went from a 7 to a 1 during the interview." Report Response
