What are your general comments?

"Not only was the interview extremely laid back and stress-free, but I actually enjoyed it as well. When I walked in the door, the interviewers asked me how my day was going and, with big smiles, offered me a cup of tea! I felt like I was just having a friendly conversation, and in fact, I ended up being 25 minutes late to lunch because we were so engaged in conversation that we completely lost track of time. At the end of the day, I left with a much more favorable impression of the school then I had had previously. " Report Response
