What are your general comments?

"I felt compelled to review this school because I was in the same group of the guy before me who gave a negative review (I met the bow tie guy he was referring to and actually thought he was very nice) and I had a very different experience. Both of my interviewers were pretty laid back, and I was able to bond with them through shared interests, passions, and food preferences. One of them even gave me awesome suggestions for dinner. It almost didn't feel like an interview except for the occasional interview type questions I wrote above. I think luck can play a big role for interviews at any school but I'm hoping this neutralizes some of the bad of the previous review and doesn't deter people from giving this school a chance."
