What are your general comments?

"My interviewer could not be nicer. It was less like an interview and more like a conversation. He worked questions into the natural flow of the conversation and genuinely listened to my answers. He did not ask me anything to "trip me up". He seemed as if he was just trying to get as much information about me so that he could make a good case to the committee. I wish all my interviewers could be like him. (Found out later all the students love him... I can see why)" Report Response
