What are your general comments?

"The interview was pretty relaxed. The interviewer did not have access to grades or scores, but he had everything else. He did mange to worm my GPA out of me. He said that he usually makes a point of reading all of the essays and telling people where they went wrong because he used to be on the adcom (but he said mine looked good). The interview was very conversational with the interviewer doing a fair amount of talking - they do this on purpose. He also made funny comments, like "I have to ask you on of those psychological questions now." If you have gone to a Preview Day, the rest of the activities after the interview will be pretty familiar." Report Response
