What are your general comments?

"Seems like a great school with a great program. Don't stress out at all if you're interviewing here, just be honest and be yourself. The day can kinda drag especially when all you can think about is the upcoming interview which happens at the very end, very anti-climactic. I got the feeling from the very minute I walked in that all of us were going to be accepted so long as we didn't seem crazy during the interview." Report Response
