What are your general comments?

"The trip started out with some of the DCOM students meeting at a pizza place near the school. It was an informal, non-required part, but it was very helpful. If they're still doing that when you interview, you should definitely take part. Afterward I went back to the room to prepare. I was extremely nervous the day of the interview (it was my first and it is my top school choice), but like everyone has said all along, there was really no reason to be nervous. My interviewers were awesome. They really just wanted to get to know me better. The questions were straightforward and lead to a great conversation. Just relax, be yourself, and answer the questions honestly." Report Response
