What are your general comments?

"you meet in a large group with all the other prospectives interviewing that day (juice,water, breakfast bars are provided), an introduction and ice breaker was done by a person from the admissions staff. Then the dean stopped by to say hello and give her sales pitch for CCOM. After that you are split into 2 groups one half interviews first (very easy and laid back and all they have is a file with your application, no scores) while the other half does financial aide/tour and then you switched...after everyone was done interviewing there was a wrap up and then lunch...the day last from 8-1...lots of down time."
