What are your general comments?

"I enjoyed by interview experience at USC. It was not stressful for me at all and the interviews were exactly 30 minutes apart. You moved from one to the other without breaks. And then you moved to the cookie social, which wasn't bad either because the committee members want to talk to you and they are really friendly. It moved smoothly and the whole process took alot less time than I thought it would." Report Response
