What are your general comments?

"my interview and the days at AMC exceeded my expectations of the school. I think the school has a good reputation in the Northeast. Even though everyone said that ethical questions are almost a guarantee, I didn't actually get any. My one interviewer was really cool and we just talked about random stuff. The other guy was really nice, but a little more structured in his interview. Both were laid back and wanted to do the best to get a good impression of me as possible." Report Response
