What are your general comments?

"A very positive experience. As a result of this interview, UConn has jumped way up on my list! My interviewers were great, very conversational. We met with the Deans of Admission and Students at separate times, and they really made us feel comfortable. The school even lets you establish residency after your first year if you're out of state so you can pay the much lower in-state tuition." Report Response
