What are your general comments?

"Overall, it was a stressful but good interview. I found out about my interview just two days before due to an email error, so I would have felt more together, prepared and less stressed if I would have known about it sooner. So, if anybody out there has applied to KU and has not heard back, I recommend you call because they communicate through email and it's possible you didn't get it." Report Response
