What are your general comments?

"The day is long, damn long. But the one on one interviews are very chill and everyone is extremely friendly. The facilities are nice, as are the students and the admissions staff. I can understand the day being long, since the school is trying to sell itself. There is a small lunch, it could definitely be a little bigger, I was starving by the end of the day. My interviews were extremely laid back and went jjust like a normal conversation. In general, eat a good breakfast, wear comfortable shoes, be confident in why they should want you and how good a fit you are for the school, and knock em dead. " Report Response
