What are your general comments?

"Since this was my first interview, I got pretty nervous at first. But overall, it was a comfortable and relaxed experience. It was not that structured as I thought. Probably because it was around exam time, the dean of admission did not give us an orientation or the PIL info session afterwards. We spent a lot time sitting in the conference room and waiting for interviewers. I recommend not to come around exam time." Report Response
