What are your general comments?

"Overall was a great experience. Extremely friendly atmosphere with southern hospitality. Right off the bat, both professors explained to me how "laid-back" this meeting will be. They wanted to know in words what my profile couldn't do on paper. The interview went a LOT longer than anticipated (80 minutes), but the discussion was open and courteous with much to learn. Not at one point did they look down or become impatient. One should really consider researching more into this place. Lastly, thought it was very kind for the Dean to contact my family only 2 days later to let me know I was accepted." Report Response
