What are your general comments?

"When I first arrived, I was fairly nervous but after the presentation started I was fine. The student ambassadors were very nice and helpful with answering questions that we had. After the Q and A section we took a tour of the facilities and then ate lunch (which was quite delicious). Next the students took us to the student lounge and we hung out till they called us for the interview. While we were waiting the students told us who would be interviewing us and what they knew about each of them. I found this very helpful and nerve calming, after they told me this info I was completely calm and relaxed. My interview lasted 10 or 15 minutes and was fairly easy and no ethical or hard questions at all - they just want to know who the person is on the paper. Overall I was very impressed with the school as a whole and am excited to hear back from them. " Report Response
