What are your general comments?

"We arrived at 8:15 with a nice talk from a faculty member about the facilities, curriculum, life, etc. Then I sat around all morning. I went on the 'self-directed' tour, but really they just sent you on a footpath through everything without any real information about the places you were in. Then lunch at like a snack bar in the MEC (the main student academic building). Then we had a tour of the MEC and Vandy. Then I had two interviews and I finished around 5:45." Report Response
