What are your general comments?

"We had an orientation first with a talk with the dean and a financial aid person. Then we watched a short video and ate lunch informally. I just chatted with the other students that were there for an interview while eating. Then we were given a tour by a second year student. Finally, we did our interviews. I was interviewed by 3 faculty members. I just answered their questions. I didn't think i did really well or anything just average but I got in. So my advice is just be yourself. Also, they are very prompt about getting back to you about whether you are accepted or not. They said they would get back to me in about 10 days. I was emailed in 5 days." Report Response
