What are your general comments?

"i wasn't overly impressed by the interview. it wasn't bad, and i wouldn't mind attending if i'm accepted, but i wouldn't be overjoyed. the buildings are great, and the fact that there is nature on campus is also a bonus. 3rd and 4th year rotations in nyc is a definite plus, but i just didn't really get the sense that i would enjoy 4 years there."
