What are your general comments?

"the whole experience was great! the interview was actually kinda long since i noticed most people in the waiting area were gone and back in 25 minutes. i took this as a good sign. the interviewer and i just had a regular conversation -- very informal. she asked me the basic questions; i answered. i asked her some questions and she answered. she told me all about this new abroad program they have started in kenya after receiving all this grant money. we spoke about how she also went to nyu, stayed for her residency and now works there. we spoke about the city and what it has to offer. basically: very low stress and congenial. the lunch and the tour that followed were similarly pleasant. the students i met (a 2nd, 3rd and 4th years for lunch) and the two 1st years on the tour talked about how great the student support was, how no one is left behind, how they *do* have free time to enjoy the city, and how everyone who can come to this school should go to this school. i hope not to let them down."
