What are your general comments?

"I was very impressed. Campus is gorgeous, right with the undergraduate stuff so we have convenient access to all of their wonderful facilities. Everybody went very out of their way to be friendly. I met (and had lengthy conversations with) over 30 first years, so I got a complete picture of what the school was like. The group interview was odd, I expected that we would interact with the other candidates being interviewed, but it was just like a one-on-one, but with more people staring at you talk. Not bad, over all. The one-on-one was rather odd for me. I asked the doc interviewing me one question, and he took up 15 of the 20 minutes I was in there talking to me so I didn't get to say much." -Posted 11/11/2002 | Report Response
