What are your general comments?

"It takes a little luck to get a group where there are a few timid individuals. If you are naturally loud and love speaking, you'll excel at the interview and get in almost for sure. If you're in a group where everyone is really good then you better have good grades to get in. I'm pretty sure they evaluate your performance against others in the room. " Report Response
