What are your general comments?

"Great, stress free day. If you come in worried, you will be relaxed by the time your interview is over. Don't be afraid to eat the complimentary breakfast provided in the morning in the board room during your introduction speech. No one in my group ate and were starving the rest of the day, until lunch. The interviewers themselves seemed to have memorized my AACOMAS and secondary application materials and were not interseted in me regurgitating the information that they already had. They asked very personal and detailed questions and seemed genuinely interested in me as a person. They were all very serious during the interview and did not even smile, but be yourself and you will be fine, and above all be honest. The admission's committee meets every week so you will find out if you are accepted within a few days of the interview. Good luck to everyone and I hope to see you in Fall 2004." Report Response
