What are your general comments?

"overall, i would have to say that the experience was a good one. the people that i met were all really friendly and stressed that we had already stood out enough to receive an interview; all that remained was getting to know us. the interviewers seemed just as interested in letting me get to know them, which i thought was a nice change from some of my other interviews. none of the interviewers appeared tough, but mccluggage (the dean of admissions) was tough, according to some of the other applicants, but i didn't think he was that bad. the interview moved lsu from the middle of my list to the top, and i will be there this fall.
