What are your general comments?

"The interview was nice, my interviewers asked easier questions than I saw on this site, consequently I was ready for all the hard questions but not the "easy" ones. The admissions staff were friendly too. Lunch presentations were kind of fast and not too informative for me, but then again I went to UW. The students you have lunch with are so great, they love this school (and they said they had terrible interviews, which goes to show that a bad interview doesn't reflect that poorly. I hope!!)"
