What are your general comments?

"It was a really relaxed atmosphere, and all of the current students were a great help in calming nerves before the interview. It was VERY friendly and they really seemed to love going to school there. I think I was only asked a few questions the whole interview. Mostly the interviewers spent time trying to sell the school to me and comparing it to the other schools I applied to. If you come from a larger more urban school make sure you can defend why you want to go to a smaller rural school, and why you think you would do well in that setting. I interviewed on a Sat. morning and was called the following Monday afternoon by the dean to let me know I was accepted =)" Report Response
