What are your general comments?

"I arrived at UNC 30 minutes early and was extremely nervous. UNC was my first choice and my only interview last year. The first interview was awful. My original faculty interviewer was sick that day so I got a new interviewer who was very adverserial. The interview only lasted about 20 minutes, but it felt like a week. To make matters worse, he was not only a faculty member, but also on the admissions committee. (you normally get 1 faculty interview, and 1 adcom memeber) So, I had two admissions committee members as my interviewers. My second interview was the exact opposite, we had a 55 min conversation about pretty much everything in my file. I really felt like I did very well on the second interview. The tour was mediocre b/c the students really didnt seem to know what they were talking about as far as facilities, but were very enthusiatic about the curriculum, student life, and faculty. The lunch was pretty good deli sandwiches and we were out by 1245." Report Response
