What are your general comments?

"We got there and met in the student center. We had some a man speak to us who was very very nice. Then the students came and took us across campus to a student panel where we could ask them anything (no other university people were there), then we had a campus tour, lunch, and tour of the apartments across the street. Then we hung out in the student lounge until our interview was over. PS If you are not familiar with Kansas City, stay at a hotel that has the KCI shuttle and shuttle to the school. That way a. you won't be late, and b. it's one less thing you have to worry about." Report Response
