What are your general comments?

"My first interview was with a student. She was a bit stressed with a test coming up, so we didn't talk long. She was easy to talk to, even though we didn't have a ton in common. My second interview was with a faculty member. She and I hit it off and talked for the full allotted time. She asked more personal questions, and at first I was caught a bit off guard. She really wanted to know who I am, which I appreciated. I was concerned because I'm not a Tennessee resident, but they made sure I felt at home." Report Response
