What are your general comments?

"The interview experience was very positive. You arrive in the morning and wait in a room with the other applicants. You interviewer comes to pick you up and in my case took me to his office. The interview itself is not stressful and more like a conversation. After the interview, all the applicants come back together and an information session is held by the dean of admissions. The session was very helpful and they let you know where your application goes next and when you should expect to hear. Finally, you take a tour of the facilities with two second year students.
