What are your general comments?

"The interview day was pretty unorganized and laid back... basically we hung around in the reception room for a good part of the morning just talking to students that dropped by. although not very well put togehter, it was a great opportunity to get to know students not necessarily associated with the admissions committee. I wished the tour covered more- i would have liked to see more of the hostpital. Overall, though, a great day... my interviewer was so kind and laid back. If you are headed to columbia for an interview, prepare, but then relax, it will be great!" -Posted 12/14/2002 | Report Response
