What are your general comments?

"It was interesting. I think one of the most difficult things was just that it was in a group setting. This is very hard to handle when there is a person in your group who completely dominates the conversation and is extremely long-winded. The school didn't seem interested in how we interacted as a group, and it was very much a structured interview. Though, I should mention, the other interview group during my time said their session was completely relaxed and like a conversation, so I guess it depends on who you get for your interviewers. Anyway, I must have handled it well enough because they called me the next day to let me know that I got in!" Report Response
