What are your general comments?

"My interviews were in the morning, so I had to be at the school pretty early. An admissions person explained the day to us, and gave us very detailed directions about where to go to our interviews. We watched a short video prepared by the students, and then left to interview. One lasted about 35 minutes, the other ran over an hour (mostly because we were having a very good, interesting conversation). Then we had lunch with some of the students (good cafeteria!) and went on the tour. After that the people who had afternoon interviews went on those, but I was done for the day. I used the time to explore the campus - very cool! I felt like it was a cross between a US campus and Oxford or Cambridge. Overall, a very good day." Report Response
