What are your general comments?

"There were more applicants there than in previous interviews, but it did not negatively impact the day. The talk by the dean in the morning was great, really piqued my interest in all of the opportunities available at the school. I felt that the tour was better than at any other interview I've had thus far -- it was organized, planned, and there was information given along the way. The facilites are also very new. Students came in to talk to us during lunch and were very laid-back, I liked the atmosphere. They were all very honest about their experiences, and all seemed enthusiastic and happy. The interviews were blind, but honestly they still followed the same path that open-file ones have had. I felt comfortable during each, although in general they followed a more Q and A format than the more conversational interviews I have had. The office of Student Opportunities impressed me, as well as the breadth of experiences available to join or create. " Report Response
