What are your general comments?

"The morning consists of a lot of presentations, but we were able to interact with the other applicants (approx 30) at times. The student interview was extremely casual; mine was held in a lounge near the library. Afterwards, we had a very nice sit-down lunch in the Faculty Club and then went on a tour of campus. My faculty interviewer was the director of a specific program I'm interested in, so the first part of the interview was pretty standard. He basically just asked me to elaborate on EVERYTHING in my application, and then the second half was more specific about my reasons for wanting to join the program. Overall, the interview went well, and at the end, they have a wrap-up session with refreshments and the opportunity to talk with Dr. Callahan." Report Response
