What are your general comments?

"The interview itself was really pleasant. I thoroughly enjoyed talking to my interviewer and I think the interview itself was the most enjoyable I have had so far (this was my fourth). However starting from the tour it was downhill. The tourguides were extremely unenthusiastic and didn't help us at all get a good idea of what downstate is like. Just to sum it up I know I can cross Downstate off my list. I already got into schools that I liked much better." Report Response
