What are your general comments?

"My interview was open file, they have read through it and I saw marks and comments. They asked some questions based on my essays but asked their follow up questions based on my responses. My interviewers were so friendly, I had a faculty member and a 2nd year student. We went off topic and it was very conversational. They rushed at the end because of our side conversations and had to ask some last minute questions to fill out on their evaluation sheet. They were just awesome and I wasn't nervous at all. Don't stress out too much and to be yourself." Report Response
