What are your general comments?

"OK, so, you start by going to campus and once you check in with the security guard, you go into the admissions office. Then you check in there and you sit in this conference room with all the other interviewees (about twelve when I went). You chat among yourself and then there is a presentation and a tour, guided by admissions staff. Then there is a whole lot more waiting and chatting until your two interviews (one with a student over lunch and another with a faculty member). Pretty much, by the end, all the interviewees have totally bonded because, let me repeat, there is a LOT of waiting and chatting. It really was a fun day, so don't stress!!" Report Response
