What are your general comments?

"They have your entire file (thick 1.5-inch booklet) in front of them. Both my interviewers flipped through them occasionally/regularly for reference. Their admissions committee has fourth year students who have full voting power and also interview (one of my interviewers was a student). Both interviews were fairly conversational, and they try to make feel relaxed. The whole day (non-admissions-related faculty talk, student lunch, tour) provides a very comprehensive look at the school." Report Response
