What are your general comments?

"The day starts at 10AM, which is nice. You get an interesting overview from the interview coordinator and the admissions counselor - they are pretty intense, but they are truthful and up front with every aspect of the school. They specifically addressed what attending a Jesuit university means to you (important to me since I'm not a very religious person). Yes, they name drop, and it's a little out of place, but I appreciated that they took the time to learn my name. It made me feel like I wasn't wasting my time and money visiting the school. They will tell you the 8 questions the interviewer asks you before you go to interview, which helps alleviate any nervousness. My interviewer was completely friendly and welcoming. The students seem fun, happy, and unstressed. The facilities are fine - not extraordinary, but not awful either. The neighborhood is fantastic. Overall I would love to go to this school."
