What are your general comments?

"I was very nervous about the interview but it went very well. I didn't really get any situational questions but the interview you have will depend on the interviewer's style--some people will get a ton of situational questions, some might get some typical questions, etc. Don't worry too much after the interview until you get your letter. I left the interview in a good mood but analyzed it for weeks afterward and eventually felt like I didn't do so well. But I ended up getting accepted :)." Report Response
