What are your general comments?

"Very long and tiring...my interviewers seemed tired too, so that sucked a lot of energy out of me...Dr. Bera is kind of leading the group of interviewees (about 10 of you) throughout the day with orientation and then closing meeting...very nice man with a lot of inspirational messages...what else...I think the best part of the experience is when you look around the school in your down time and find some students to hang out with. Everyone there seems to be very happy with life at Davis, so that is AWESOME. " Report Response
