What are your general comments?

"the interview day was organized pretty well considering there were about 40 people being interviewed. there are two separate interviews, one with a faculty (30 minutes) and one with a studnet (about 45 minutes). student interview was very relaxed. he was actually tired from partying the night before but we still had a good conversation. lisa, the admissions director was very friendly. there's not much to do within the area of the school. you have to go to the city and the school provides a shuttle to take you there."
