What are your general comments?

"The school's interview format was by far the most stressful experience. I never heard of a group format. For the first couple of questions, I went first to answer, and the other four would just reiterate my answer with useless jargon. If you happen to get a brown-noser in your group or if you are the suck-up, don't do it. The interviewers stress at the beginning to not monopolize the time and to keep your answers terse and succinct. Be considerate!! I had a couple in my group and they just were rude." Report Response
