What are your general comments?

"I hit a deer during my drive to Cleveland so the trip didn't start out so great, but it gave me an interestin story to tell. My interview was one of the first ones of the day, which I liked because I didn't have to stay nervous the whole day. The interview itself was more of a pleasant conversation and my interviewer was really nice and relaxed. The student interview was pretty much the same, very laid back and relaxed. There's a lot of down time so I suggest listening in on a class and talking to your fellow interviewees. Also, walk around the campus if you have time because the tour doesn't cover everything."
