What are your general comments?

"the school, students, admissions faculty were great and made the school very impressive in my mind...my interview was not so much..i had 2 ppl, one really nice man and another very intimidating lady which made for a very interesting dynamic. i thought my interview went really badly because the lady kept ripping me apart, but i think she just did that to see how you dealt with stress because other ppl who had her thought the same thing..i was accepted 2 days after. if you are yourself and confident you should be fine even tho it may not seem like it at the time..."
