What are your general comments?

"The Whole experience is GREAT! On my day, there are totally four people for the interview. I am the first one at 1:00pm, but I was told to come at noon for a half hour essay. Each of us has a different topic. Mine is a drug issue, not an ethical question. Then there is an optional half hour tour. My interview started right after the tour. The three interviewers gave me firm warm handshakes and brief self-introductions first. They are very nice and humour. That made me much more relaxed. The questions they asked are more difficult. 2/5 of the questions are about your own experience. From this, you knew they did take some time to study you. It will be good to review your own application forms before the interview. The rest questions are ethical and situation quesitons. In general, my feeling, they did not usually ask those common questions that most other schools asked. They are unique and creative. The only way out is really just to be yourself. Do not worry about one or two quesitons that you could not answer. I guessed they just encouraged you to think critically and give the best shot. I got my admission letter on March 5th.
