What are your general comments?

"There were 4 interviewees and we met with 2 first-year students for a question and answer session first thing. Then members of the admissions committee came in and talked with us informally as well. The schedule was almost a little too loose, one of my interviewers was changed at the last second. Both interviewers seemed interested in personality and character traits as opposed to academic performance, so there weren't a lot of focused questions. I had a lunch interview with a second-year which was also casual, and then a tour which went on a little long but very comprehensive." Report Response
