What are your general comments?

"The interview was only with one person (a faculty member) - but some candidates may have had a student there too. The interview was not very stressful and the questions were very basic. The essay was what I expected - if you read the information about the essay on their web page, you will be well prepared. There was no problem solving exercise. There was a slide show run by students, which was nice but not all that informative for someone who did their prereqs at UT. There was also a tour run by students. " Report Response
