What are your general comments?

"Everyone was very casual, which almost made it difficult to keep a professional attitude. Make sure you don't get so caught up in casual conversation you forget to sell your good points. (I think this happened to me a bit.) Have things you want them to know about you ahead of time and make sure you fit them into the conversation. They don't seem to ask the generic questions but just ask questions off your essays. Also, side note, don't worry about weather too much. There's underground tunnels everywhere so we never went outside. It's easier to not have to cart around a coat." Report Response
