What are your general comments?

"Interviews were great, laid back...be prepared, they have your application and are analyzing it in front of you; if that makes you uncomfortable, get used to it. I had two faculty interviewers at the same time, which I liked, but others didn't; just bounce your focus between the two and make sure you interact with both of them. My student interview was uber-positive, like he was on my side trying to help me get in (I know it worked, because I am now!!!). RELAX AND BE YOURSELF." Report Response
