What are your general comments?

"my experience at NYU was awesome. Honestly, i added this school after originally submitting my AADSAS and I am glad I did. I stayed at a hotel called Hotel 17 which i recommend. It was very close to the school (about a 5 minute cab ride). It's not like it was very luxurious or anything, but i paid 100 bucks and had a decent room (although the bathroom was shared and in the hallway). It was just a convenient hotel to stay at. I had breakfast at a little cafe right across the street and then arrived at the school early. We began interviewing right away. the interview was extremely conversational and not stressful at all! there were some questions, but while i was answering, the lady who interviewed me would say stuff as well, so it was very conversational and i just felt like she was trying to get to know me. then after the interview, we had a very helpful question and answer session with a 4th year student who is the president of the class. he was very down to earth and I could tell he was honest and wasn't just trying to sell the school to us. then we went on a tour of the school, which was great. we then had a financial aid session and the lady presenting was also very honest as well. finally, we were fed lunch. I suggest eating a large breakfast or bringing a light snack to eat in between your interview and lunch time because i had breakfast at 630 and we didn't have lunch till about 1230. But, they fed us very well for lunch. We were able to go to the cafeteria and eat whatever we wanted. The lunch concluded the day and I took the subway back to the airport. Overall, i left with a very positive impression of the school and I am happy that i added NYU to my application list! " Report Response
