What are your general comments?

"Endurable; was glad when it was over. All the stress was my own doing though. Like I said, my interviewers so extremely nice; they were very jocular and talkative and were constantly trying to put me at ease. However, they didn't spare me the 20 questions though. They asked many questions; standard ones but still lots of them. However, I was somewhat prepared so nothing caught me too off-guard. Be prepared to answer everything you put on the personal statement. My interviewers combed that thing." Report Response
