"The interview was very laid back and relaxed. The interviewers knew my application inside and out and were able to ask questions that were relevant and showed they were interested in me as an applicant. The interview was very conversational, and I felt that they spent a good deal of time trying to sell me on the school- they are enthusiastic about their program and want to see it grow!
