What are your general comments?

"The interview was so relaxed and conversational. My interviewer started off by telling me all about himself for 5-10 min. Then he asked me to basically tell me about myself. The conversation progressed from there, we talked about the emphasis program about my background as a biomedical engineering major, etc. He kept asking me if I had any questions about Vanderbilt and when I ran out I asked if he had any questions about me. Then we talked about my hobbies. It was really great!" Report Response
