"During lunch several admissions officials come in to talk to while we were eating. I had taken my suit coat off to eat and was worried I looked a little too casual. I didn't think the admissions reps were going to come while we were eating." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"When I first got there we sat in a big conference room for lunch and numerous speakers which became dull. The student interview was not stressful and then comes the tour. I was fortunate to have an upbeat, energetic tour guide and really enjoyed my tour. The faculty interviewer and I had a good rapport so I rather enjoyed my interview, which was much more like a conversation than interview. Center City is a neat place to live and students & faculty are all friendly. Great interview experience." Report Response
