What are your general comments?

"In comparison to my other experiences, the other interviewees at GWU were a lot nicer to each other and we all helped each other relax. A dean of admissions came in and talked to us first and he presented a lot of information as well as helped put all of us at ease. The tour of the school and the hospital were great (even though it was raining that day and we had to walk outside to walk between the school and the hospital). My student interviewer was really nice and we had a pleasant conversation. My faculty interview was amazing, despite the fact that he was a little late. By far the best interview experience I have had thus far! He was really nice and our conversation continued passed the interview time and we continued talking about Cuba and Miami (we're I'm from) as he walked me out of the building. I think closed-file interviews are better than open-file interviews. " Report Response
