What are your general comments?

"The interview could not have been more perfect. Madison really wants to impress its interviewees, whether its the fact that you meet with a M1, M2 and a M4, or that they handpick exciting interviewers; they impressed me. Furthermore, my interviewer and our speakers explained to us how the entire process works after interview. Two cool things are that your interviewer writes feedback on you for the committee and plays no other part in the process, and that the Dean of Admissions is not a part of the Admission Committee, so she is there solely to be of service to you.
