"I first took an essay exercise with 8 other applicants and answered a critical thinking question (what was the most important news story you saw in the last month, why was it important?) in 20 minutes. Then I interviewed with three faculty members. They were pretty informal and asked a variety of questions, including the ones on the website, and seemed very interested in what I had to say.
