What are your general comments?

"My interview was scheduled in the afternoon, so I had my observations, lunch with a student, and visiting class before the interview. It was better that way because during the hours interracting with students and faculty I realized that they are friendly and nice and the purpose of my interview is not to test my intelegence or find a reason not to accept me, but just to meet me and find out more about my personality. It helped to reduce stress before the interview. I saw that people in the admission office are very busy, but they tried to do their best to assist us." Report Response
