What are your general comments?

"I had no opinion of Pitt when I went there but now I really really like it. The cafeteria had decent food, everyone I met was nice, the curriculum seems well thought out. All the feedback I read on here is really honest and accurate. I knew what to expect. I was stressed because it was my very first interview. My interviewers really tried to make it a low stress day. The student interview was about 45 minutes as was the faculty interview. It was more conversational. My student interviewer didn't even take notes and he only knew my name. The faculty had my personal statement. Then I had a 15 minute meeting with the dean. As far as I could tell she only had my picture. Oh yeah they ask you to bring a picture with you to the interview so if you have pictures left over from your secondaries, hold on to them. The tour was long but informative. They really try to familiarize you with the school and surrounding area. If you plan to do any sightseeing on your own tho, bring your comfortable shoes!!! The school is on a seriously steep hill.
