What are your general comments?

"UC Irvine impressed me alot. The interview day was long, but well run and there was alot of food available. I went on the tour in the morning and then there was breakfast and some information sessions afterwards. On-campus housing is affordable but there is an 18-month waitlist - we get on the waitlist on the day of the interview though. Also, if you do the summer program before classes start, you have priority on the list and will probably get on-campus housing. Both of my interviews were laid back - both of them talked ALOT - I barely said anything. I almost felt like I was interviewing them. I heard though that some of the other interviewees were asked alot of tough ethical questions. They accept about 1/2 of the interviewees and they encourage you to submit extra letters of recommendations to support your application in the month following your interview. UC Irvine is now one of my top choices. " Report Response
