What are your general comments?

"I literally just got out of the interview 3 hours ago. Lets just say this, if you made it to the interview, you are practically in - just don't give them a reason to cross you off the list. All you have to do is read what you sent them (application), brush up on their website and get a feel for what their school "specializes in", and go through a good number of interview questions that they asked in the past using this website. As for me, I may have screwed this interview up because it is my first one. Dr. Tau couldn't even look at me in the eyes while asking me questions - I almost felt like he didn't like me. I like the school and will probably go there if they choose me. Turn around is one to two weeks! We'll see. Good luck - just relax, answer the questions honestly and calmly." Report Response
