What are your general comments?

"The interview was conducted at the Blackwell Inn, which was is a very nice hotel owned by the university. They provided a well catered breakfeast and lunch for the applicants, both of which were staffed by a small army of student ambassadors, faculty, and admissions staff (thereby ensuring that each applicant had someone from the school to talk to and ask questions). My interview was very laid back and I kept waiting for them to spring "the Question" on me (you know, the one you dread that you won't be able to answer without demonstrating some level of inferiority) but it never happened. All of the faculty and student representatives present were very upbeat and enthused to be there and more than willing to share their ups and downs with the school. Over all, I was very impressed with the program and this interview by far has been the smoothest out of the several that I have been on thus far. I highly recommend the school and, as a result of my interview, am seriously considering them as my top pick. December 1st can't come soon enough..." Report Response
