What are your general comments?

"The day started out very well with a video and tour. Following the tour you got your picture taken and then had lunch with some of the students. The students were very nice and open. Afterwards the interviews began with a ten-minute break between each, though mine ran over so I had to rush to the next interviews. The first interview was VERY laidback, just you asking questions. The latter interviews were a bit more stressfull, but had very good questions. All in all a great and personable interview experience!" Report Response
