What are your general comments?

"The interview went really well I thought. I was a bit scared of the "group interview" before the interview, but that was unneeded worry. The facilities do not "look" great from the outside, but the interiors of the buildings are great, and the school is renovating constantly. I would love to go there if I get accepted, but I doubt that I can afford it. Dr. Haight is simply great! He went above and beyond to make the day go smoothly and easily for us, and he was always there for advice and Q & A throughout the interview day." Report Response
