What are your general comments?

"It was overall a very stress free interview. I couldn't sleep the night before because I guess i was so excited. My interview was only 10 minutes and at first it freaked me out after the interview is completed. My interview was the fastest out of all the 12 students were there. Everyone looked at me odd when I walked out because it was too fast. The staff and faculties really tried to make you feel very comfortable. Each faculty only interview one student, so it is all depend on who you going to get. I had a faculty and she was very easy. She asked me overall about only 4 questions, but the questions were really typical. No tricks at all. I learned that the interview length doesn't mean anything. I got accepted 3 days later.
