What are your general comments?

"At IU, I think the interview is more of a chance for the admissions committee to meet with you and make sure you can talk in complete sentences, sit upright and wear a tie properly. They didnt ask many questions specific to my application nor do I feel like the interviewer could really "vouch" for my abilities in front of the committee. The best thing you can do is to be likeable, polite and thoughtful in your answers." Report Response
