Has anyone gotten into a school after fumbling on their "why X school" question? Rest of the interview went well (I think) but mind went blank for that question.

Thanks all. I put so much effort into the prior question (about why that specific program, which is unique to their school) that I didn't have much in the tank to say about the school as a whole. Fingers crossed that the program-specific interest helps a bit.

That's the most important question in the interview. I've fumbled other behavioral questions and got in but not sure about that questions particularly.
