What are your general comments?

"I arrived at the site about 20 minutes early and was the second interviewee there. Getting to know the other interviewees was awesome, but always remember to NOT discuss your interviewers until you have left the venue. We were told that our interviews would be worth 20 points a piece, but we were not told how much these points weighed relative to the rest of our applications. I was the first one interviewed, which was pretty cool because I didn't have time to psych myself out beforehand, so I was pretty calm. I think it all boils down to being yourself, which sounds cliche, but it's a must. You don't need to use big words or act like you're perfect, otherwise they will see through it. Also, don't make the mistake I did if lunch is included in the interview day: I ordered a buffalo chicken sandwich, which was drippy, too spicy, and all-around nasty, so I ended up throwing it out and feared that I would offend the student tour guides. Ask the interviewers some tough questions- make THEM think, too. Although I worried about every little thing that I did that wasn't perfect, my fears were soon forgotten when I received my letter of acceptance the following week." Report Response
