What are your general comments?

"Overall the day was great from start to finish. The receptionist in the Admissions office definitely takes care of interviewees by offering fresh coffee, tea, hot chocolate and even soup. I don't know how important it is but it showed me that MCV try to cover all its bases when it comes to hospitality. The structure of the day was very nice too. They had planned seminars and a planned tour with lunch included that has not been as organized at other schools I visited. I felt very comfortable asking my interviewer any questions and if there is anything you are slightly the bit worried to ask the tour guides who are second years will answer anything and will NOT have anything to do with whether or not you are accepted. One more thing, my interviewer did NOT look at my file prior to our meeting. Although they had the opportunity to do so, she rather chose to have a very casual conversation. Thus the questions may not be indicative of a normal interview." Report Response
