What are your general comments?

"Coming into the interview, I didn't expect much, from what I had heard about the snottiness of the school. I had heard that EVERYONE was super arrogant. And although I didn't exactly get the warm fuzzies from EVERYONE, I thought everyone I met was very friendly. I felt that the questions in my interview were definitely challenging, but at the same time, they were friendly about it. I think that is FINE if people ask the tough questions, but they are nice about it. That's the ideal!!! Why ask boring questions and get boring answers?? :) " Report Response
