What are your general comments?

"The only suggestion that I want give to future interviewees is that you shouldn't be so nervous. You're there to advertise yourself to the staff and student so that they can recommend you to the admission committee. So if you're nervous, it's not going to help you. I would also recommend that you should know yourself VERY well. Know how to draw examples from your personal life and relate that to their questions (when it's possible). Lastly, remember to SMILE.:-) Try not to be so tense. " Report Response
