What are your general comments?

"The interview was very pleasent and casual. Anyone else interviewing at this school should do their best to remain calm and be prepared to speak in a converstaional manner. Answer honestly and be prepared to talk about ethical/ moral topics. There aren't necessarily wrong answers to these questions but a strong and well thought out response will be in your favor. Good luck to all interviewees!! Also, for OSS travelers, there is an airport in Manhattan and the staff/ students are very willing to shuttle interviewees to and from the airport/ hotels. However, it is a small airport and only receives flights from limited airports so it can be a longer trip or more expensive due to increased number of flight connections." Report Response
