What are your general comments?

"I arrived around 8:15 and checked in with security. He made a call to admissions, and then I was escorted by someone from admissions to a room where the other students were. You will spend much of your day in this room. We all chatted for a bit after which one of the facility came in and spoke to us about the PBL curriculum for a while. Interviews began at 9:30 and lasted until 11:30. There were 3 panels of interviewers, 9 interviewees showed up, 2 were absent. Great bunch of people, hopefully some of them matriculate. While the first group interviewed, the last group was went on a library tour, and then the 2nd and last groups went after that. We had lunch with 2 OMSII students where we could ask questions and they told us what they thought about the school and the area. After lunch we went on a tour of the school with a lady from admissions. After the tour, someone from financial aid came and spoke to us. Then we were free to go, it was about 2 pm.
