What are your general comments?

"Davis spends less time coddling you than other schools during the day of the interview. There are no other activities planned the day of the interview. They are very professional, but also very personable. My interviewers cracked a few jokes throughout. Some more tips: Be on time; the interviewers are running on a tight schedule. Answer questions directly and assume that in an ethical dilemma, there are no other ''good'' alternatives. This gives you more time to talk about yourself! Don't be afraid to ask clarifying questions or to say you don't know enough about a topic. Good luck!" Report Response
