What are your general comments?

"Two of the interviewers were female, one a professor for poultry medicine, the other a local practicing veterinarian. They were both very nice and took a lot of notes during the interview. The third interviewer was a male professor for biochemistry. He was pleasant and welcoming, but during the interview I caught him doodling on his notes page. I felt the interview was more of a process to get to know me as a person and not just a student. I was asked a couple of technical questions which were simple but the interview is mostly structured as a ''conversation'' guided by the interviewers. Overall, it was a pleasant experience and I left in a good mood!" Report Response
