What are your general comments?

" Very similar to everyone else's feedback. The Dean is a smooth talker and did not miss a beat at all in his talk. After his intro, a faculty member answered questions for us while we waited to go to interviews. Interview itself was really casual, just talked about my activities/personal experiences, then shifted the conversation to some of the interesting things my interviewer did (helped by the school giving us the interviewer's bio beforehand). Lunch, then tour, then closing talk (where he says that 1/3 of all ppl apply to this school, and that they interview a lot of ppl). " Report Response
