What are your general comments?

"I felt relaxed the entire time, except for when I was lost and thought I would never find the registration table. I loved Dr. Wheeler's introduction / orientation before our actual interview. He was very informative and funny, which relaxed us quite a bit. The interview was so much fun that the 60 minutes felt like 5 minutes! It felt more like conversation, not a drill session."
