"The interviewers I had were excellent. They clearly stated at the beginning of the interview that their main goal was to talk about any weak points in my application so that they could defend me as well as possible when I came up for discussion by the admissions committee. They asked some probing questions, but genuinely seemed to have my best interests in mind." Report Response
