What are your general comments?

"Naturally, the stress level was very high because I felt my future was hanging in the balance. But I tried to channel my nervous feelings into an outward enthusiasm. I focused on communicating clearly and took confidence in the fact that I had prepared extensively. In the end, I felt I had made a genuine connection with my interviewers. The essay was a little harder than other schools, but if you have mastered the five paragraph argument essay, then it really should not be a problem. Leaving the interview I felt confident. But as the weeks wore on, my confidence quickly eroded and I became certain that I was to be rejected. Waiting is definitely the hardest part. My advice is to focus on your communication (written and oral) and really think about what makes you a unique applicant." Report Response
