What are your general comments?

"It was a great interview. It is 1/2 structured: they will ask you four of 12 possible questions (all on this site)which you will answer and the faculty cannot follow up with a prompt. It wasn't as weird as I thought it would be. The second half is unstructured and very casual. Afterword, you meet with the admissions coordinaotr for any further questions you may have about the school and she is really funny and laid back." Report Response
