What are your general comments?

"Accepted within 2 weeks of interview. If you can, go to the student meet and greet the night before, it really gives you perspective into the school and material for quality pointed and informed questions during interviews. Interviewers seemed to appreciate that. Both interviews ran waaaay over time. 1 hr 15 min each. Waited a total of 10 minutes because they took so long. Though it was a good thing, and I was right!"
