What are your general comments?

"The interview is laid back. Darrel is awesome, and really makes you feel welcome. Just be prepared for basic questions (see below). Try to stay with someone you know. Hotels are over 120/night. DC is a great city, but it is expensive. Go to Georgetown for some fun, it is an awesome part of the city. The white house is only 5 blocks from the school, and the other monuments are also within walking distance. If possible, fly into REAGAN/NATIONAL airport, because there is a metro stop there. From that metro stop, you can get to almost anywhere in the city, northern virginia, and marylyand. " Report Response
