What are your general comments?

"I drove from New Jersey, so I had expected some traffic. It took about 1.5 hours to get there from Bergen County. Once in, about 10 of us interviewees waited for our names to be called and interviewed. The interview literally took 10, maybe 15, minutes. We were all done by 10 am, and then had to wait until 11:30 when the afternoon group arrived. It would have been torturous but I took advantage of the oppurtunity to get to know my fellow interviewess. There is a Dunkin'Donuts and Starbucks nearby to pass the time. At 11:30, we heard from financial aid, and about NYCOM's PBL curriculum, while having lunch. Then we went on a tour with two first-years, and the day was done. An unbelievably relaxed, laid-back experience. " Report Response
