What are your general comments?

"I arrived at 7:45 AM and had to travel quite far across campus for the 8 AM interview. The interviewer was very good-natured, and it was extremely low-stress. Most of the questions (like that concerning Africa) were related to things that I had mentioned in my application. Then I sat in on a second-year class for two hours. First year students then led a tour that pretty much consisted of getting lunch. After that, my day was done at 1:30 PM." Report Response
