"The interviews are in the morning." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviews are open-file, so both interviewers had my application and essays in front of them and had studied them well. The first was laid back, but knew my mission and wanted to get a deeper sense of who I am. The second basically had marks all over my application for follow-up. He even almost quizzed me on certain activity dates. Interviews start first thing in the morning after an introduction and student panel. The students really seemed to enjoy one another's company & have fun. Tours are given throughout, and a huge Texan lunch is served afterwards. The College Station area seemed great, and only about an hour's drive from Houston." Report Response
