What are your general comments?

"overall the day was great! im more or less expecting to get waitlisted as im an out of stater, but a girl can hope! and the pop essay was fine and neither of my interviewers brought it up. as a side note, though, each interviewer has a packet of questions - each page is titled "leadership skills" or "personality" and then has a list of questions, so expect some of the typical "who would you interview?" and "tell me a funny childhood story" questions as mentioned on other posts" Report Response
