What are your general comments?

"My interview was at 10AM. My interviewer was really nice, the first thing we talked about was college sports, which made me feel really comfortable. The interview was pretty much like a conversation. Standard questions about my experiences and school work. Nothing tough, very relaxing and laid-back. Then there was a tour at 11, we ate lunch in the cafeteria at 12, and then the tour continued until about 1:30. The tour guides were nice. The associate dean of admissions was really informative, and told us the whole process of admissions, and financial aid info. She was really honest and straightforward about the school, which was appreciated. Overall a good experience!" Report Response
