What are your general comments?

"Arrived there at 7:20am they say check in starts at 7:30, most everyone aws already there though. Breifings all morning until lunch. Some were very informative and dispelled any misconceptions about the school, others were boring and repetative. Before lunch they took us on a small tour of the facilities. After lunch we had interviews and were ecnouraged to go talk with various administrators at their offices between interviews. These are some of the people who are on the admissions committee so it helps to show your face and ask questions." Report Response
