What are your general comments?

"I had a very positive experience. One of my interviewers was excellent (Dr. Gold). He made me feel completely comfortable, and explained everything I needed to know about the school. Everybody was very nice. The students all wanted to answer all of your questions. Oh, I said above that it was open file, but it is really half open/half closed. They have access to your personal statement and all that, but are not supposed to look at your numbers. They look at that afterwards" Report Response
