What are your general comments?

"The process was nice and quick. Arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the interview so you can talk to current students 1-on-1. There is a brief history of the school which is relaxing because it is explained that the interview is to see if you fit with USC and if USC fits with you. There were only 4 guys in our group of around 30-40. The student walks you to the room where a faculty member is waiting. The interview is supposed to be 20 minutes but we got to chatting and ended up talking for 40! oops! It was extremely casual, they just wanted to know about me and were enthusiastic about their program. After the interview we went and waited to write our summary paragraph, I was a little nervous at first but found it to be pretty easy. Then some of the student leaders stuck around to ask questions...all in all it took about 2 hours and was a pleasant experience!" Report Response
