What are your general comments?

"I didn't expect to get in because I had heard so many horror stories. Then, after the tour of the school I fell in love and gushed during the interview. I felt I did well and it was certainly a thorough and complete examination of who I was and what my motives were. My fellow interviewees had mixed experiences of the interview - some where very pale afterwards and didn't say much, but some were smiling and happy. (This isn't meant to scare anyone - just what I experienced)" Report Response
