What are your general comments?

"The interviewer was very patient and laidback (t-shirts and jeans, with a big mouth billy bass on the wall behind him) but still conducted the interview in a professional manner. The actual "questions" portion took up maybe the first half of the interview. The latter half was spent discussing the research he's involved in, his personal impression of the school and its students, and other little things. Overall, my advice to others is don't stress over it. You think too much and you might start stuttering or speaking too fast. It was a relaxing and conversational interview." Report Response
