What are your general comments?

"The interviews at MSU are really geared to get to know you as a person and are not at all stressful. Before your interview, your picture is taken. When all the interviews are being reviewed later on, they will have that picture to help the interviewers remember your better. The interview itself was in a small room with the 3 interviewers sitting with me around a small table.I was asked to give consent to have the interview tape recorded. They set a timer for 30 minutes. The interviwers introduced themselves. They asked me questions and then gave me a chance to ask them questions. The timer went off when 10 minutes were left and then at 5 minutes. " Report Response
