What are your general comments?

"The interview process was really great. The number of candidates interviewing on a particular day is really small, so there was a lot of attention focused on each individual. My interviewers were really enthusiastic, and the facilities were beautiful. The first years were all studying for exams, but everyone still took time to stop us in the halls and chat. There seemed to be a lot of comraderie amongst the students, and that showed a lot as we toured the campus and met others. " Report Response
