What are your general comments?

"My interview experience was VERY laid back. It was more conversational and less formal than some of the other interviews? They just want to get to know you better, and not necessarily grill you about your credentials. If you go there, really talk to the students to get a feel for the school-esp. a second year, b/c they have seen the transition from grades to P/F. " Report Response
