What are your general comments?

" My interview was more of a conversation than an interrogation. The interviewer, (Dr. Baker) is a knowledgable guy who shot straight from the hip about my chance of getting in based on my academic record. It was one-on-one and was even enjoyable. Don't be nervous just represent yourself like you are the bomb but not arrogant. Sell you and turn every potential negative into a positie. I found the your body language says a lot. Nod to show you are listening and sit in the middle of you chair with a straight back to show enthusiasm. The body language worked for me. Be sure to use mouthwash because you will be sitting very close to the interviewer. " Report Response
