What are your general comments?

"There was no formal presentation about the school by the admissions office, which I found a bit disappointing. I met with a researcher in the morning (they give you the opportunity to request that), sat in on the end of a first-year lecture, had lunch and a tour with students and fellow applicants, and then had my interview. The interview was great - very informal, conversational, the interviewer was interested in getting to know me and encouraged me to follow my goals. It was kind of strange that I hand-delivered my file to him and waited for 15 minutes while he looked it over..." Report Response
