What are your general comments?

"I only got about 2-3 hours of sleep the night before, so I could have been more coherent. After the orientation we went directly to the interview, no time to prep, go to the bathroom and get thoughts together, nothing. The interview was much longer than I had anticipated. Had I known I would have prepared more complete statements. I just tried to make it clear how much I wanted to attend the school, and left it at that. We'll see what happens!" Report Response
