"I interviewed with Dr. Craig Woods, who was awesome and amazing. The interview was basically a conversation rather than him asking really pointed, specific questions. He had really read my application and we talked about the content of my essays. By the way, I just found out I got into UCLA - and I'm definitely going! I think UCLA's the best school I visited and maybe the best one in the country! :)" Report Response
