What are your general comments?

"The whole process was very helpful. I was nervous since it was my first interview, but the interviews were done in a very casual fashion. The first interview was with the admissions committee member - she started off just going through my application, asking me questions, and we just chatted for a while. The second interview was with the faculty member and she asked me more questions like I was expecting to get, but nothing too difficult. Again we ended up chatting for a while on different topics. Both were very friendly and made you feel relaxed and not nervous." Report Response
