What are your general comments?

"We started the first few hours with Dr. Haight who initially told us about the interview process and then had us introduce ourselves and then gave feedback. The financial aid advisor then spoke with us briefly, we took a student tour, and then interviewed for about an hour. There were only five us us there that day, so I interviewed with only one other applicant and had plenty of time to be interviewed as well as ask the interviewers questions. Typically, I was told that students also sit in on interviews but they were testing that day so none were able to do so." Report Response
