What are your general comments?

"My interview was in the early morning, so I had it before the tours. I found this personally more comfortable, because I think I would have hated touring the campus before being interviewed. After the interview, I felt I was more relaxed and open in the tour. The interviewer asked a variety of questions on all sorts of things from my application: My volunteering and shadowing experiences, my grades, etc. He also talked about things not on the application, such as what I ate at college, what my favorite movie was, what were my hobbies, etc. Still, the interview was more of a conversation; we just talked and I answered whatever questions came up in the conversation. In the end, I had a chance to ask any questions I had. Overall, I enjoyed the interview and the tour a lot!" Report Response
