What are your general comments?

"There was a writing sample, a group exercise, and the interview. Between each step, there was time to talk to current UH students and some staff. Everyone wants you to relax and do well. If this interview stresses you, you need to consider therapy. It's really laid back. Go into it with a relaxed, confident, positive attitude and you'll be fine. Anyway, you should be relaxed and confident because you are one of the few applicants that got invited for an interview. So have some fun. The actual one-on-one interview was simple. You basically sit in an office with a faculty member and talk to him/her. They ask you some questions, you talk, and that's it. I would recommend reviewing the questions on this site, but don't memorize answers. Just have general ideas about what you want to talk about. Be yourself. You don't have to be perfect. Just relax and talk. It sounds simple because it is." Report Response
