What are your general comments?

"Overall the interview experience was very good. I was impressed with the immediate greeting when I arrived and the way the admissions people treated each student. The interviews were very conversational. My first interviewer was a fill in, because of a previous cancelation, she was very nice and easy to talk to. The second interview was an admissions counselour and he was very informative. The questions were asked in a general conversational manner. The third interview was much like the first interview. Overall I felt very comfortable at the school. The surronding town is a shock for anyone who is used to a large city, but the short commute time and low cost of living are a major bonus about the school. This school is one of my top choices."
