What are your general comments?

"The interview day starts early, but ends in the early afternoon. The interviews seem overwhelming because they are back-to-back, but all of the interviewers seemed really nice and the interviews were very laid-back. Most of the interview was spent getting to know me and reviewing my application, and I didn't get any ethical questions. Take the opportunity to talk to students in all four years - I had the chance to talk to a third year student. He didn't say much about the third year, but I got the sense that it is stressful. Also, students claimed that the second year grading system didn't breed competitiveness and that the weekly quizzes were a good thing. People with late interviews will most likely be waitlisted, but the adcom claims that there are a few open acceptance spots left. Everyone should know by the end of March." Report Response
