"It was great, very impressive of the school as a whole. The day is set up so you meet the director, have lunch, do one interview (1 hour), tour, 2nd interview (1 hr), tour and then a final "debriefing". The schedule helped to take the pressure and anxiety off since there was other things to do also." Report Response
