What are your general comments?

"I thought the overall experience went well. I arrived just in time, almost missed it because of traffic so that added to my stress. I was actually embaressed because I live in LA and I should know how bad the traffic is. I commented on the traffic issue which lead nicely into my living in the westside and attending UCLA. Pretty cool way to start bragging about yourself. I applied last year, didnt get in to a good school so applied again. The major difference this year was BRAGGING, DESIRE, LEADERSHIP, and USC FOOTBALL. I actually did the same at 6 other school interviews and was accepted to every school. Interesting enough the majority of the time we talked about USC football which was a better topic to relax and talk about. It worked out because in 4 weeks i got my acceptance, but I will always be cheering on UCLA to beat USC!" Report Response
