What are your general comments?

"you arrive at your assigned time, and you may either have interviews in the morning or afternoon. you have a financial aid session (which was really well done) and an introduction with dr. foxwell (the assoc. dean of admission- really nice, too). after that is lunch with the students (i don't know what happened to the other posters on here, but we got both halves of the sandwich) and then a tour with a fourth year. the interviewers were very laid back and even though my first interviewer made me late for my second interview, he called ahead to say that i was on my way and that it was his fault. my second interview was really conversational and seemed more like recruitment more than anything else. once you have finished your interviews, you are free to go."
