What are your general comments?

"i had a great time! it was fun and laid back. i also tried to get to know the other interviewees as much as possible to know what their strengths were so i could stand out and be unique. and when i met Dr. Yarborough (the dean's right hand man) we had a very sarcastic and fun argument which i think helped my application to get passed through. he knew who i was and liked me. i think that was important in my case. basically, try to relax. an interviewee in my group was so nervous that when dr yarborough tried to strike up a conversation with him he was totally awkward. i also think one of the most useful parts of the day was lunch with the students. i used this time to get to know about student life...what to expect as far as social things and how stressed i will be in the first year."
