I interviewed Dec 1 and was accepted to the Gainesville campus about 2 weeks later. If you go to the interview feedback forum, then I listed the questions they asked. The actual interview was 10 minutes and they were mostly based on variations of how you deal with conflict and difficult situations. There was no essay. It was pretty relaxed, so don't worry too much.
