What are your general comments?

"This school has been my number one for the start, and I would probably nearly die of sheer joy if I got accepted. I'm only exaggerating a tiny bit. Be optimistic, because they accept nearly half the people who interview. Sometimes interviewers let you know that you're a great candidate and will likely get in, but, perhaps because it was closed-file, these interviewers had poker faces so I really don't know what to expect. Anyway, if you interview on a clear sunny day, like I did, expect to melt when you see the views. Take some time to explore the fantastic city of SF afterwards, too." Report Response
