What are your general comments?

"This was just a really well-put-together and informative interview day. Also, it was so stressless. You get to see pretty much everything, but the day isn't unnecessarily long. Also, several students come in to the lunch room and answer your questions. The students - socially and intellectually - impressed me very much. My interview with the faculty was very straightforward - none of the questions were difficult. I got the impression that the point of the student interview is just so that admissions can see that you're a normal, sociable person and that you'll fit in at GW. My student interview seemed pretty nervous, actually. In any case, it was still a very easy interview - totally conversational. Overall, I really enjoyed everything about this school."
