What are your general comments?

"The interview were wonderful. A word of warning, I was applying as a sophomore to the Early Assurance Program ran by the school for Wright State student to be awarded early conditional acceptance into the school. That being said, everything went exactly as it would have had I been applying during my junior/senior year so my experience should be comparable. There were two one hour interviews that were more conversational than anything. There were few is any of the generic interview questions. Both interviews were completely laid back and enjoyable and the one hour time flew by. The key is to go in there and be yourself and be honest. " Report Response
