What are your general comments?

"The day is very organized and they give a presentation and a tour before your interviews. The interviewers come and get you from the room for your interviews, and by then you have had time to relax and get to know the school. My first interview was with a faculty member, he asked all of the typical questions and seemed to be following an outline. He was very encouraging. My second interview was with a student. It was more a conversational and she really just wanted to get to know me. I always liked GWU, but now I love it!! " Report Response
