"The Wednesday evening welcome session isn't anything but a second year greeting you and killing an hour before the first year student hosts come to get you. It's basically one more opportunity to ask questions and find out more about the school. Not much grant/scholarship aid available. Their endowment is not very large. They do 1 or 2 interviews, depending on availability of interviewers. You don't know ahead of time when or who. You just wait in the waiting area for your interviewer to come get you without any idea when it will be." Report Response
