What are your general comments?

"Overall, the experience was very good. I was surprised at how happy everyone was considering the first years had an exam the following Monday and the second years had an exam the next day. Everyone was really friendly and telling us how great their school was. The day started off with an introduction to the school for the first hour. Then we had some down time before our first interview. After our first interviews we went to listen in on a first year lecture. There's no notetaking since the slides are already bound up in notes for the students which is definitely a plus. We then had lunch and got a tour of the school, followed by our second interview and then we could go home. A pretty short and easy day. Very laid back." Report Response
