What are your general comments?

"It is an all day event. You have to pay to park, if you do not want to navigate the busing system (recommended, only a few dollars). You interview with about 8-10 other people, which is nice because you have people to talk to during the potentially long, post-lunch waiting period. Anyway, students are alway popping in the waiting room to wish you luck and eat the horribly unhealthy cookies that the staff puts out for you. Thank God they had tea....Well, the students seemed nice enough. The tour guides come by after a spell and take everyone around the school. This part I found extremely boring. The students giving the tour were not very knowledgeable about the school itself, but, thank goodness, could point out all the building. The facilities are pretty nice, but again I did not find this very helpful at all. After the tour was over, they dropped us off back in the waiting room where we waited for our two individual interview to start. The people I interview along side of where talkative and the time went by quickly. The interviewers themselves were great and very comforting. We did the interviews in their respective offices, which, because of the clutter, made me feel overdressed in my suit and tie. I probably would have been more comfortable in a jumpsuit. After this, you pay about $6 to get out of the parking deck and begin the 1-10 week waiting process." Report Response
