What are your general comments?

"I read a lot of interview feedback that said to expect cold interviewers who didn't smile and just fired questions at you, but I actually found that, while my interviewers did tend to ask very directed questions, they were also very warm and conversational....plus they laughed at my bad jokes. As for the school, it was passable and is still a great deal for the lower cost. As I said before, the student body didn't exactly give me the impression that I was surrounded by the greatest minds of my generation...but at least that means you can graduate towards the top of your class.
