What are your general comments?

"We had a tour by a first year student, and even got to see the anatomy lab which was nicely set up. The tour guide was very positive and seemed really happy with his choice to attend UNECOM. After the tour we gathered and waited for the interviews. It was really informal but I learned a lot about the school and the students while I waited. The interview was with a professor and a second year student. It wasn't very stressful and I didn't think they asked anything strange or unreasonable. Although they did ask about my status at other schools I was applying to. Mostly, however, I got postive vibes from everybody." Report Response
