What are your general comments?

"Stay at the General Lewis. It's really cute there, and it just makes it easier. You meet and have breakfast there at 7:30am, then you go to the school and meet some admissions people. Then the interviews are conducted, while it isn't your turn you are free to roam the building and sit in on lectures, which was cool. Then you go for lunch one on one with a student, which is good to get to know the school from a student's view. Then you go back and take a tour of the school. It's pretty basic, but it's really relaxed. They don't want to make you feel intimidated. Hope this helps!" Report Response
