What are your general comments?

"Well, I had the EARLY interview at 8:30am. At first we were in the lobby, but moved to a room because it was warmer. Then we had someone talk to us about the whole interview process and what we should expect. He was just trying to make everyone relax, which was a good thing. After about 20 minutes of the intro, there were 24 student interviewers, EACH assigned with the 24 students in the first interview group. As my student interviewer got me, we went to the faculty's room and there it began. It was pretty much laid back, seemed as though I had control of the interview because they rarely asked any questions directly, and just wanted me to ask them questions. That lasted about 20 minutes, and then I was placed back into the same room where I started from, and you wait until all the other students interviewed at that same block time to finish. Afterwards, we read a short paragraph and summarize it. Then we had a Q&A period which doesn't count for anything, so at that point, the interview was already over. Overall, it wasn't as bad as I expected, but anything can happen." Report Response
