What are your general comments?

"The day at Ohio State was very good except for the rain. The whole curriculum/financial aid overview was very organized and it was good to eat lunch with the students. The tour would probably be great if it was not raining. My interview was very formal, but the interviewer was nice. It was VERY much question and answer, not conversational at all. But I think it was also because he is a new interviewer so he was a bit uncomfortable as well. They tell you your admission status in ten business days (2 weeks) after your interview; they post it on the website. The students there seem very happy, not competitive, and friendly. I liked the group of people I interviewed with, they seemed like fun people. Everyone was from Utah for some reason. Good day overall! " Report Response
