What are your general comments?

"The best way to prep is to make a list of questions and to practice speaking so that you don't sound rehearsed but you know what to say. Come up with at least 15 questions to ask the interviewers, or make them up as the interviewer is speaking. Basically, show them that you know a lot about the school and that you're very interested in going there. Remember to smile and speak a little slowly and confidently :)" Report Response
