What are your general comments?

"The day started with a five minute video and interview assignments. There are two- but actually three- interviews. There is an interview in the morning, one-on-one with a faculty member, and another in the afternoon with a different faculty member. BUT, during lunch, you hang out with 3rd and 4th years who evaluate you afterwards, so really its like a third interview. That part was a little awkward because at most schools, the students you talk to are just there to help answer questions and to help you relax, but these students go back and report to the admissions committee. Other than that you are on your own for the day and left to wander aimlessly. Its not as bad as it sounds because all of the interviewees are in the same boat, so just stick together."
