"The interview was VERY conversational. One interviewer had read your file, while the other had not. I was at ease the entire time (which was amazing because I tend to get really nervous)! Well, I was still nervous, but the interview was NOT scary at all! I didn't feel pressured by any of the questions. My interviewers just wanted to get to know me as a person and learn about my experiences. I got to ask them questions. It was very neat to hear why they chose Penn!!! :)" Report Response
