What are your general comments?

"Great! There's a few negative points about the school, but I really liked the attitude of the faculty and staff, and that to me is important. All the interviewers were only 5-10 years older than me (i'm 19), so that was cool. The questions during the interview were basic, and they told us beforehand nobody was going to try to trick us or catch us on any questions. Then I did the essay, but they only wanted a paragraph or two. They gave us a packet of financial aid forms at the end....thanks, i'll need em!" Report Response
