What are your general comments?

"Well my interview was with the Director of Admissions so I was a little nervous. He was very familiar with my file, and his questions were very detailed and "hard-hitting". He was very nice about it though, not an interrogation-type interview, but he did ask many questions that I had to sit in silence for 30 seconds or so to think about." Report Response
