What are your general comments?

"We started out by meeting in the library and hearing a talk by the dean of admissions. We then had time to walk around and get to know each other and some of the students. We also had lunch and a tour. Then I had two interviews in the afternoon...one hour each. They were a lot of fun, much more so than at any other school. The first one was a student...he just wanted to know about my background. The second one was a faculty member who wanted to talk about politics." -Posted 11/23/2003 | Report Response
