What are your general comments?

"It was very laid-back. I was actually interviewed by a member of the ad-com, so I feel like my performance in interview will affect the decision. There were only 2 other girls there besides me. They were very nice. No one was really pushy or attention-hogging. There were times when I felt like my answers were a little vague and maybe the interviewer didn't really understand what I meant. :( One of the girls in my group went very in-depth with one of her answers (started talking about amines and specific mechanisms!)and that made me feel kind of dumb. The tour was pretty short and the two guides were very nice. They had nothing but positive things to say about the school. The equipment in the school looked pretty new, but the actual building is rather old." Report Response
