What are your general comments?

"Started at 7:30 A.M. at the admissions office. They provided breakfast food, OJ, water, and coffee. Attended briefings all morning, ate lunch in the cafeteria with a student tour guide (which applicants must pay for, but since they don't charge a secondary fee, you're still ahead about $65), and then went on a tour. After the tour, interviews were scheduled between 1:00 P.M. and 3:00 P.M. During downtime, we were welcome to talk to admissions committee members (which is helpful). You also have to check in with security to be sure your paperwork is completed properly. It was tough to gauge how my interviews went, because the interviewers weren't very expressive."
