What are your general comments?

"Started at 9 am , and if you are driving I would leave early or go a day before to check it out because with the construction it can be confusing. The first hour Dr. Haight gave an introduction. Then he gave us a Q&A section to warm us up and give tips regarding our personal applications. Then we had the student tour. And then the group interview for an hour. Each student was asked 3-5 questions depending on your file and who they want to ask more about. I interviewed on a Monday and was accepted that Friday. They meet every other week on Thursday to make a decision on the last two weeks of apps. They rarely take off the waitlist but if you are waitlisted you could be picked up for the following application cycle via early decision. " Report Response
