What are your general comments?

"Sweetly stress-free. The two one-on-one interviews were truly conversational; it was clear the purpose was a mutual get-to-know-you experience. They want you to know what you're getting into as well. The tours and demonstration were helpful and equally laid back. Also, staying with a 'student ambassador' for the night was as useful as anything." Report Response
