What are your general comments?

"Well, I took a wrong exit and drove around philadelphia for an extra 2 hours. I arrived at Upenn at 11:00 although my interview day started at 9:00. When I got there, I was kinda pissed since Upenn had posted the wrong exit signs. Anyways, somebody at the university gave me directions to the school. When I arrived, I met this women who apologized for the directions, and offered to find some food and coffee while the student tour was returning for fin. aid. Later, I learned that she was actually the Dean of Admissions! I must admit that the hospitality at UPenn was phenomenal and it left me with a good impression of the school. " Report Response
