What are your general comments?

"It was okay. I was very nervous because this was my first and only interview. The process is not stressful unless you make it that way. They served great food but I couldnt eat because I wasnt feeling well (lasagna, broccoli, salad, and cheesecake). Also the people I interviewed with were great. I would love to have them as classmates. They can be a litte intimidating when discussing their backgrounds and how they were accepted to 2-3 schools already." Report Response
