What are your general comments?

"My one and only interview, late late in the year, surpassed that which I expected it to be. Although taken aback by the local community, I was encouraged to learn that KCUMB cares about its people, especially those in dire need. The school, a million dollar institution, was not that ivory tower on the hill but rather a sanctuary for the dejected. I did the best I could do with the resources I had and couldn't tell you either way if I think I will be accepted or just the opposite. Regardless, though, of the outcome, it was a useful experience that I will take with me in all of my future interviews." Report Response
