"The interviewers do not have your academic record, so it's all about getting to know you and see what you're about. The interviewer I had was wonderful and we got to talk about different topics (like music lessons and Korea) at different points in the interview, which was super nice (not a constant focus on why-do-you-want-to-be-here, very directed, questions)."
