What are your general comments?

"The Dean's talk is good and informative. You get scheduled for an interview at either 9:15, 10:15 or 11:15. There's no choice there. Students come and go, inviting you to visit classrooms, etc. There seemed to be an overall feeling of having had a good interview, although some weren't so sure about it. You'll get to see a lot of the school, chat with a lot of students. There is coffee provided all day long, don't over do it, I did! " Report Response
