What are your general comments?

"No matter how much the other students' SDN feedback say to relax, I was not able to relax before the interview because there is almost always something that would make us anxious. Now, having gone to the interviews, I just want to say, "RELAX! You wouldn't have been invited to the interview if the Admissions Committee did not find you extraordinarily outstanding. :) You are already a shoo-in =) and the interview's purpose is just to see how even friendlier you are! Be honest and be yourself because that's the person they think is "outstanding." " Report Response
