What are your general comments?

"Very laid back interview. the day is very unstructured and they don't really do much to sell the school. some students dart in and out and talk about how much they love the school. one of the students seemed really cool. others kept talking about how they got wasted each weekend. dunno, i'm not really into all that anymore (even though, yes, it IS New York.) they didn't have any presentations, speeches by deans or organized tours. our tour guide was a very nervous student who seemed to be pretending to be someone he wasn't. my interview was truly laid back and started on a really positive note--the interviewer said she was "impressed" w/my file! i liked the school, but the location was a terrible problem. i don't know if i could handle that for 4 years.
