What are your general comments?

"I went on the school tour before my interview. It gave me a better idea of what the school was looking for in its candidates. My interviewer was very friendly. Told me in the beginning that her role was to be my advocate in the committee meetings. This really made me relax more, though I was still a bit nervous. We basically went through my application pointing out it's strengths and weaknesses giving me a chance to elaborate on each. " Report Response
