What are your general comments?

"So I arrived fifteen minutes late due to the traffic and thought that I was going to get rejected for sure (luckily, this took a little stress off of the interview itself cause I figured I was already in the dog-house). I was escorted to my interviewer's office where I vehemently appologized for my tardiness, only to find out that she was a very sweet, understanding lady. The interview started with her asking the general "tell me about yourself" question, went on to some stuff about my research, my act/sat scores and highschool life(although i have no idea why), my family, etc. Most of the time we were just talking on topics that came about through tangents in the conversation. I had my friend show me around the campus so I did not go on the tour. All in all, the campus is pretty much what I expected. " Report Response
