What are your general comments?

"Fifteen minutes before the interview, I checked in at the admissions office, the earlier group was taken to a holding room where ID was checked and we sat for a long time. We were again split into 2 groups, taken to a different room and wrote the essay. There were 6 essays topics to choose from. We were taken on a tour of the school, then taken to a small classroom to take the basic math quiz. Each person was set up with 2 interviewers in classrooms. The interviews ran late and my info sheet got buried at the bottom of the pile and the interviewers took a minute to figure out who I was. Overall, it wasn't all that stressful, but the interview schedule wasn't very organized." Report Response
