What are your general comments?

"Over all I thought the school was great. The students seem pretty happy, but it was only the third week of school. The facilities are outstanding, I went to school in an urban jungle and it was nice to see vegetation on campus. The interviews were pretty stressful, two of the three people played good guy/bad guy on me, and the other just filled in the pauses. I'm not a big fan of the panel interviews, I just don't think you get and accurate representation of your personality. At the end I was left feeling better about things when the "bad guy" told me he hoped to see me in the fall. I interviewed on the first day of interviews with a new format, so the day had a couple of bumps in it, which included alot of waiting. Be prepared, this school has a history of this from what I can tell, and I don't think the new format is going to change this. Plan on sitting around for a couple of hours before and after your interview. " Report Response
