What are your general comments?

"Dr. McClugage spoke briefly as an introduction, financial aid speech, then lunch and tour with 2 students, then 3 interviews. My tour guides were fabulous and made me excited to be there even more than I already was. One of them knew a friend of mine thru class, so it was a nice ice-breaker, and the two of us got a long great! My 2 faculty were very nice and conversational in the interview. They were very curious about me and all I had done. In turn, they expected me to be curious about them and LSU. My closed interviewer was a retired orthopedist, and the interview felt very strained, a lot coming from him. He was very cut and dry, answer the questions. Overall, I was pleased with the interview but I do think I needed to have been more relaxed." Report Response
