What are your general comments?

"Wonderful, relaxed day. The interviewers didn't really grill me so much as they wanted to get to know me as a person. While the interview is technically closed file, the interviewers do have access to your personal statement and secondary essays. The school seems to be a diamond in the rough, of sorts. You don't hear too much about it, but its really a fantastic place. " Report Response
