What are your general comments?

"This was an excellent learning opportunity for me. Northwestern has a 30 minute individual interview (open file) and a 1 hour 15 minute panel interview (closed file). The panel interview has three people, 2 doctors and one M4. You are interviewed with two other people. Its really not that intimidating. I was really nervous to begin with but I spoke with a lot of passion. Just be yourself, its all that matters. In my individual interview, we were talking about Babel and how it compared to Crash. They really try to know you as a person apart from the grades and academics. I got accepted into the program and I think just being myself and showing my positive,non-academic side really helped."
