What are your general comments?

"Being from North Dakota, I knew what to expect as far as the atmosphere at the school. The people were all good-hearted and down to earth, which is how most of the people I deal with in my life are, so I was very happy about that aspect of the day. I did not get any kind of competitive vibe from any of the other applicants or the students/faculty, which was really important to me. The facility is very nice, so as long as a person can put up with the cold weather, UND is great for them." Report Response
