    I'm sure you'll be fine. Like I said before, it was just like a conversation and just be yourself. Don't worry about them throwing very hard to answer questions, they just want to see if you understand the profession and the challenges that come with it. The questions may also differ for each person because everyone with different backgrounds are applying. I was never asked about my strengths and weaknesses. Also, I find it helpful to ask the interviewer questions regarding the school and even the city, if you have never been there. Def will help! . It's quite short too, only 25-30 minutes. I'm quite anxious though, I feel confident but then again I feel having a good feeling is going to get me jinxed for some reason. Has happened in the past.

    Thanks Demeanor89, I know they will not ask any question that I have not heard before. Nonetheless, this is one of the biggest moment of my life. I really just want this so badly. I suppose I will just have to put my best forward and then hope and wait like everyone else. Talk to you soon.

    Hi Hippocraticrush,

    I was interviewed in August and I have not gotten a response yet. If my memory serves me right, I believed the interviewer told me that they will be sending out acceptance letters at the end of September or around the first week of October. I hope this helps.

    Hi Demeanor89,

    The interview went okay. It was exactly like you said it would be. It was quite short and very laid back. I hope we will be successful. Thank you for the info.

    Hi Deb5737,

    Thank you for your response. I felt very comfortable with the interviewer because she was extremely friendly and nice, which make it harder to predict. Ughhh September is coming up. It's time to look into my mail box. Good luck everyone!

    Congratulations!!! I also received my phone call today and was ACCEPTED :-) Looks like we're going to be classmates.
    I was speechless on the phone, and cried after hanging up. I am ecstatic. Please feel free to start a threat for January 2012 cohort!

    Good luck to the rest of you all. Anyone else hear back?
