"They claim that all interviews are low-stress, but this is a lie. The interviews can vary wildly. It's really up to luck whether you click with the interviewer or not.

What are your general comments?

"There are a lot of rumors about the Dean of Admission's interview. I found him very aloof and distant. He didn't read my essays or even look at my file. When he asks if you have any questions (and he asks like 20 times), don't try to make up bulls**t if you don't (he'll get annoyed), just say "I honestly don't have any questions right now" and let him get on with his presentation about the school. His interview doesn't count anyway. Oh and he takes your picture." Report Response
