What impressed you positively?

What impressed you negatively?

"The group interview is not focused on your academic acheivements at ALL. I thought I would get a chance to shine, but instead it was just a lot of ''what do you like to eat'' type questions. I assume they just want to see your personality, but you come out feeling like you didnt really get a chance to show off and explain why you should go to NW. " Report Response
