What are your general comments?

"The people that interview you (faculty & students) are vrey nice and do their best to put you at ease. They are also very honest about the educational quality and curriculum. They will tell you straight off which classes are not the best and why, but they also talk about what they're doing to improve that. If you interview there, write down the questions that you have in advance and any that you think of during the meeting before the interviews. The people interviewing you really want to help you."
