What are your general comments?

"Contrary to what I expected, I actually had a wonderful time. The atmosphere was very laid back and they made me feel comfortable right away. There were a few tough questions about how to fix health care and health care rationing, but that's what I had expected and had prepared for. The students we talked to had both been WWAMIed and sent to Pullman, but they had only good things to say about it. The school is aware that they have come across as arrogant in the past by not trying to sell the school, so Dr. Hunt now has quite a marketing pitch. It's great--he sold me! Definitely my first choice school. " Report Response
