What are your general comments?

"I arrived at the front office where i waited about 20 minutes for my interviewer to come get me. Then he introduced himself and we walked to his office where the interview was held. It was very laid back, more like a conversation. It was an open file interview so he asked me a couple of things from my transcripts. Nothing too stressful. After the interview he let me know that we should expect to hear from the admissions committee about the first or second week of april. You recieve a score for the interview portion and a score for the essay portion. Then you are ranked among all the candidates. Xavier does give preference to their own students so I asked how many seats were still available, but he didn't know. However, he said that just being there was a good sign. Apparently, they only interview people they really want. Also, the essay is after the interview and everyone gets a diff. topic. They are pretty random, not really dealing w/ pharmacy."
