What are your general comments?

"My interview went great! I didn't have Dr. Terry, but I heard he wasn't bad at all. It was very conversational and relaxed... they were basically trying to convince me to spend the next four years there. It was almost like they were trying to sell the school to me, and I didn't have to sell myself to them. The other students in my interview group were really cool and we talked and had fun the whole day. Lunch with some Nova students was also very good - they gave us some good insight on the school. And of course, Fern was great and made us all very relaxed. Overall, the day was long but wonderful... It was nice that Lynne says we can call to find out if we got in or not, instead of waiting for the letter in the mail. And I found out exactly one week after my interview that I got in! Just from that one day, I fell in love with the school and I could definitely see myself at Nova for the next four years." Report Response
