I found an interview feedback the night before my interview and it really helped-I researched the essay topics and the questions the interviewers asked the applicants and the interview was a breeze!"

What are your general comments?

"I had a great experience. On the way to the interview on the hotel shuttle I met another interviewee, so that really helped calm some nerves having someone to talk to while waiting for the interview process. Like everyone says, just RELAX and be yourself, and you'll be fine. It's one of the 1st things the panel tells you when you go for your interview, and I really think they will get to see the real you and you'll find it easier to talk to them as well. I left the interview feeling Awesome, and that I aced it...I really was excited/relieved after the interview and didn't realize I was in there so long, it seemed like the interviewers wanted to talk some more, but held back some questions b/c there were more interviews after me. I hope this helps, and good luck to future applicants! See you there!" Report Response
