    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at UC San Diego (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    Relaxed environment for students; isn't too professional which keeps students comfortable. often times entails group activities as other candidates are also present in the interview. Might seem like you all are competing for who talks the most, but the interviewers/student affairs staff notice everyone and are looking to create well-balanced, diverse teams/leaders.
