What are your general comments?

"I arrived the night before and stayed at the Clarion. When I woke up I ate breakfast and spent about 10 minutes reviewing what I had written in my applications. I then went to my interview, had a group discussion about financial aid and then toured the building. I left directly after lunch. They notify you within two weeks of your acceptance. My interview was long (90 minutes) but the interviewer and I had a lot in common and discussed many things outside of the typical interview. I started the conversation by commenting on a painting hanging in the office. That helped establish common ground and a more comfortable environment." Report Response
