What are your general comments?

"The interviews are at the beginning of the day, which makes the tour more enjoyable. You also get a little card of facts on the people you will be interviewing with. However, my first interviewer was horrible in the fact that he kept attacking my application and putting my answers to his questions into different contexts. He made me feel as though I didn't deserve the interview. The second interview was more conversational. He basically wanted to get to know me to see if I would fit into the student body and vice versa. They don't leave you alone for one second of the day, which makes for a very long day. Overall, the school is impressive and the students are very happy with the education they receive. It is now one of my top choices." Report Response
