What are your general comments?

"There is a lot of hype on this website about the interview panel grillin students. The interviewers were nice, and of course they are gonna ask tough questions. This isn't suppose a cake walk. Almost every question they ask comes from your profile. Be prepared to answer anything about your application. If you did research, volunteer, anything, be prepared to talk about it. You just gotta realize that they also want natural answers, don't make up some jargon cuz they'll know. " Report Response
