What are your general comments?

"Maybe it's just me, but this place was the Taj Mahal. Impromptu morning tour with an elderly faculty member and self-proclaimed school historian. Typical Financial Aid meeting, then lunch with 1st and 2nd years who gave lots of insight, then the individual interviews. Student interview with a 4th year who personally seemed to dislike me. Faculty interview went well but was cut short. Then a full tour afterward. Despite the shaky interviews, I thought the place was great." -Posted 07/08/2005 | Report Response
