What are your general comments?

"I fell in love with Yale! My two interviews were overall good experiences. My first interview was very analytical and I was asked very personal questions in a cut and dry manner. The interviewer had not read my application and simply flipped through the papers to ask me random questions. My second interview was delightful! The interviewer was so familiar with my application he did not bring a hard copy. I was asked a series of typical questions and flip questions. Ex. What is your best/worst quality?" Report Response
