What are your general comments?

"My personal interview was pretty laid back. I had very nice, conversational interviews. I really think this is, in part, luck and in part what an individual makes of his/her experience. This seems to be the case at any school. My interview group consisted of 15. They took about half of us first, and then half of us later so there was some waiting around. Bring something to read or get to know your fellow interviewees. There is one thing. Apparently if there is a huge disparity between your evaluation from one interviewer to the second interviewer, you may be pulled after lunch for a third interview. This is so that they can get as fair of a picture of you as they possibly can. " Report Response
