What are your general comments?

"this was my first interview but remained my favorite through all the others. the panel interview was actually kinda fun - they give you the groups in the morning so you know who else you will be with, and you can get to know them before the interview - then you really feel like cheering each other on. they ask general questions at first that you all answer, then as they start to get to know you better they come up with individual questions targeted at each of you. it was nice because you weren't always on the hot seat, and some of the questions that were asked of other people, i was really glad i didn't get! i was impressed by the facilities and really liked the students (hesitant about the fact that so many are from the 7-year program though, as an older applicant). by the end of the day i was completely exhausted though."
