"My stress level was insanely high just because of the missing letters of rec. I was so preoccupied with calling the committee staff back at my school to get them to fax it in asap, I didn't have much time to relax and talk to other applicants. But once it was taken care of I had a great time and I felt I had a great interview. It was only suppose to be 30 minutes, but we talked overboard to 40 mins. The interviewer was really interested in some of the stuff I was involved in and we hit it off quite well. " Report Response
