What are your general comments?

"Since I had read the interview feedbacks from this site, I was prepared for a rather unorganized interview, and thats what I found. My interview times were changed as were the people with whom I was interviewing. The tour ran long (although I can't complain since it was the best part of the day). The admissions people were really nice; they just seemed rather scatter-brained. " Report Response
