What are your general comments?

"Overall it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. Really, just be yourself and don't try to have prepared answers for everything. Treat it just like a conversation. This was my first interview and it was on the first day of interviews for Texas. I flew in the night before from France so I was a little jetlagged and could have done better w/ some more sleep. Be aware that there is an essay at the end of the day as well as a survey. It was quite an abrupt ending to the day. All in all I was accepted here but have chosen to go elsewhere." Report Response
