What are your general comments?

"The lady that interviewed me was one of the sweetest little ladies I've ever met. She made hot chocolate for me. I can not stress enough that the interview I was given was LOW-stress. She had done her homework on me, and really used the interview to build the case that she was going to make for me to the admissions committee (which meet every Friday). My interview was in the admissions office and I was told that decisions are made within 6 weeks. " Report Response
