What are your general comments?

"The school's staff and students were friendly. A few of the students stopped by the interviewee's and talked to us for hours. It was nice this type of friendliness. The interview is relative stress free, but the questions that each prospective student was asked were very different. Questions really depended on the panel of three interviewers that were assigned. Most of the questions I was asked were directed towards learning more about me." Report Response
