What are your general comments?

"I didn't get that ethical question everyone said would definitely come. Maybe because one interviewer was out... which made for a very cosy and laid back interview. I felt completely at ease and we were all laughing and telling stories so much we'd get side-tracked from the questions. But it's good because I ended up conveying what I wanted to. Since it's a closed-file they just want to get to know you and if you'd be a good fit for their school." Report Response
