What are your general comments?

"This interview was a learning experience. Practice, if you will, for other interviews I have in the next few weeks. It confirmed my belief that I don't want to live in WVirginia. I think it really is a great school for the right student. I really got the impression that you will have a successful and complete education, and will learn what you need to have a great career. I personally don't feel that I belong there. I'm very much a bigger city type of person. Would likely go crazy in this type of environment. Stay at the General Lewis Inn! You have to meet there at 7:30am anyway, and it was full of character. Like a true colonial Inn. It felt like I went back in time to the late 1700s. Interviewee rate is way cheaper than normal rate, and totally worth it." Report Response
