What are your general comments?

"I really enjoyed the interview day. The people everywhere made me very welcome. Some of the people seemed a little too proud and really showed off their school. Tour was nice and the two students were very helpful in answering questions, all the faculty was great. Dr. Simon very nice. Ended up talking about travel and religion during the open file interview part. Just be yourself and don't sound too rehearsed or fake, people can see right through that when you are having a conversation like interview." Report Response
