What are your general comments?

"I got into St. Louis at 11pm the night before my interview, and checking into Olin was not a problem. The room was spacious, but it was a bit cold (good for me, others may disagree). They gave me an alarm, towels, and blankets. I woke up at 6:30, showered, etc., and checked out - they store your luggage for you. I then joined the other ten applicants for breakfast at the Cafe next to Olin lobby, and then to the admissions office for the orientation session. I had a 9am interview, so I had to leave the FinAid presentation a bit early so as to compose myself - I shouldn't have, because my interviewer was about 20 minutes late. The interview was very conversational, and the interviewer was very complementary - a really nice man. After that, the other student who interviewed at 9 and myself went on the tour with an M4. The facilities are amazing, especially the Children's Hospital and the new Medical School building. After the tour, Lunch in Queeny tower with a doctor who must have been my twin, separated by birth and 20 years - try the honey glazed salmon, it's really good! Then back to admissions to drop off my name badge and survey, and then back on the road." Report Response
