What are your general comments?

"I was really nervous about the interview because I've never had a panel interview before and a lot of the questions that I read on this website seemed bizarre. I was worried that the other students on my panel would be super competitive, socially inept, or just plain mean. It turned out that the other two students who interviewed with me were awesome, and we were all asked reasonable questions. Overall, I had a great day at Northwestern and I would be very happy to get accepted. " Report Response
