What are your general comments?

"Overall it is a very good campus. The admissions staff is really nice and open to answer any questions (like most campuses). Also, the Dean of Admissions is a cool guy and pretty laid back. In terms of the interview itself, the best advice I recieved was from a MSIII who suggested that when an interviewer appears to be attacking your weakness that he/she is actually trying to get a good explanation out of you for the particular weakness in question so that he/she can in turn give a good explanation of why he/she (the interviewer) should recommend you to the admissions committee. That definitely put it in a different light for me." Report Response
