What are your general comments?

"Overall, the day was very pleasant. Our interviews were scheduled first thing in the morning so that we could enjoy the rest of the day. The formal presentation by the admissions department included several members of the administration who both seemed very eager to help us out any way they could. Two second-year students gave us a thorough tour and offered their candid opinions (largely positive) on a variety of subjects. Unless you have a good reason to do so, don't stress out about this interview. " Report Response
