What are your general comments?

"Fantastic. Good to get the interviews out of the way at the beginning of the day. Was a surprised that I didn't get actual faculty interviewing me, though I was more than happy with my interviewers.

The interview is a mere conversation and no one should be scared going in because frankly, there's nothing to be nervous about." Report Response
