What are your general comments?

"I was very nervous since this was my first (and, as it turns out, ONLY) interview. You meet with the other interviewees and watch a quick presentation after being introduced to the Dean or other administration. Then, you get your folder with your interview time and interviewer names on it. The interview itself was relaxed, more like a conversation than anything else. After the interview, the tour guide, who was an MSI, took the two interviewees on a tour of the school and then we were free to go." Report Response
