What are your general comments?

"overall, it was extremely positive (the dean is a laff-riot)...though after the presentations it just degenerated into people sitting around talking...i was one of the last interviewed, so i was waiting for what seemed like hours. i wish they'dve done something productive with the time...like letting us see a lecture or something. the interviews were very relaxed...but later interviewers are sleepy. keep them awake! i thought the tour guides were being sort of artificially happy-happy...but everybody in the library was all smiles too. the students seem thrilled to be there, despite the cost. they seem to go out of their way to find people with interesting stories. oh yeah...i asked them about AOA, and second year tour guide asked back, "what's AOA?". i couldn't tell if he was being sarcastic or not; but if he wasn't, i'm sold! F/P/HP all the way baby : D" Report Response
