What are your general comments?

"With my student interview, we just went to the cafeteria and chatted. She was really friendly and just wanted to get to know me a bit. Very low stress! <br> My other interview was with an alumni off campus. (I had selected this option when choosing my interview date.) The only stress I had was self-inflicted. Some others I talked to that day had pretty tough ethics ?s, but I didn't. The last 2/3 of my interview was my interviewer talking and giving me advice about the application process. At one point, he said that the purpose of the 1st 5 minutes of the interview is to make sure that the applicant is normal. He just wanted to get to know me. A lot of the questions were about the current app process because he has been out of school for a while and just interested in who's applying now. Very low stress!" Report Response
