What are your general comments?

"I just found out I was accepted which is awesome, only took a week. The overall experience was good, I was the first one interviewed in the morning session and my interview was a bit more intense then a conversation as many people seem to have, but none the less the interviewer was very nice and tried to make sure I was relaxed. None of the questions asked were too left field and be prepared to sell yourself to the school as it seems most people were asked to do so. This was my first interview and it was a great way to start." Report Response
