What are your general comments?

"The whole process was pretty smooth. They manage to keep the interview almost on a conversational basis and both interviewers seemed really interested in what I had to say. I stayed with a first-year and he helped me out a lot. I highly recommend doing that instead of staying at a hotel. After the interview the committee ranks you from 1 to 5 (1=acceptance,2=top of waitlist,3=middle of waitlist,4=bottom of waitlist,5=rejection) and I heard that most of those on the top get in while most at the bottom don't get in. I was fortunate to get accepted right away but they tell me that some people don't get accepted until august so don't give up if you don't get in right away." Report Response
