What are your general comments?

"The day was very laid back. Every applicant meets with an advisor to review your file, then she presents everyone with a presentation about the school/program. She will answer all your questions, and even gives you answers to interview questions! After lunch and a tour with currents students, they call you in for your one-on-one (or two) interview. They did not ask any question that was too difficult. It is more of a conversation in which they want to get to know you and you them. The interview lasted about 25 minutes. They emailed me late that same night and said I was accepted! Good luck to all! " Report Response
