What are your general comments?

"It was great we got there in the morning, they provided us with breakfast to pass the time, sat in a group with the rest of the people being interviewed for the better half of the morning waiting to be interviewed. The waiting was nerve-wracking but gave us all a chance to meet with the rest of the group and get to know them. I had 2 interviews, one with a student and one with a faculty. They were both really laid back and asked no tricky questions. After our interviews you go on a tour of the school with a tour guide who is a student, that gives you a great idea of what the students think about the school. They provide you with meal tickets, so lunch is on them. After that you are free to go." Report Response
