What are your general comments?

"The day began with a tour and then we had to sit in this room and watch a movie about Erie and listen to some presentations. Randomly people got called out for their interviews, but no one knew what order or time we were going. I anticipated my name being called everytime the door opened and didn't end up interviewing until last (11:30). This is why I thought the interview process was stressful. I also missed the finacial aid presention when I was in my interview. All of the questions in the interview are read directly off of a piece of paper and the same as what everyone is saying on this site. The admissions person told us that One interviewer is supposed to be the "mean one" and one is the "nice one." SO don't be worried if one does most of the talkinig and the other writes stuff on the paper the entire time. After the interview we had lunch with other students. " Report Response
