What are your general comments?

"The interivew was very low key.. My interview started with one interviewer, but a second interview join half way through the interview, which threw me off a little. Many of the questions that I was asked could have been answered by my primary and secondary application, but I didn't mind (maybe I just enjoy talking about myslef) I got to spend a lot of time with the other applicants, the Dean of Admissions, and student tour guide. I interviewed in the morning, which was very nice... the afternoon interviewers had to have lunch and take the student before their interviews, and i think this setup may not allow the afternoon interviewees to be as relaxed as the morning interviewees.."
