What are your general comments?

"Bring copies of your personal statement to hand out. If you are confident that your personal statement will stand-out, then offer to leave it with your interviewers. Also, ask for their business cards so you can follow up with them. This has become commonplace, so it won't make or break their opinion of you. It is more of a courtesy that shows you have done your research and know that this is kind of an unspoken "must" for interviews." Report Response
