What are your general comments?

"This was my very first interview, and it was a great experience. The afternoon interviewees were asked to arrive at 11:30am. We were then taken to a conference room and given lunch, in addition to watching a short video on MSM and sitting through an admissions presentation. The we learned about financial aid, and two second year students came in and spoke to us very openly and honestly about the school. Then the morning interviewees took a tour of the school while the afternoon group went into interviews. The interviews were blind, so the faculty interviewer had only seen our files immediately before meeting us. It was a very relaxed experience. After interviews, we took a tour of the school and then were dismissed for the day. " Report Response
