What are your general comments?

"Anticipated for more challenging and ethical questions but none were asked during the interview. My 2nd interview was not 100% closed file; the two interviewers already read my essay and some of my volunteer activities; I guess they just haven't got access to my grades and test score...whew thank GOD. KU has a lot of rural programs as well as international programs for their students so I can't wait to enter this school. In addition, some of the abroad programs even grant scholarships to eligible students, how awesome is that." Report Response
