What are your general comments?

"The day starts off with an admissions presentation, financial aid and then a tour. Then you get to do your interview. If you get 1 interview, it means that you were interviewed with a core member. You will have 2 interviews if you didn't get a core admissions member. After the interview, I recommend walking downtown to the capital state building...awesome sites. Then, we stayed with students and watched the final game of the world series. " Report Response
