What are your general comments?

"I landed at Kansas city Airport and rented a car and drove 3 hours to Kirksville. Kirskville does have an airport, but it's a local airpot, so you'd have to transfer and for me, it would have been an overnight flight, so I drove instead. The school provided me accomadations- I stayed with a student which was really great. She was involved in diff. activities despite the small town. The interview was really organized and we immediately started interviews. Each interview was an hour long and you have two of them. One interview grills you, the other tries to sell the school to you. After that, you have a 15 min. interview with the counselor. Overall, I didn't stress about the interview and it went really well. They provide a lunch w/ student ambassadors and you go take and tour. *When you ask questions: ask "In your opinion, what is the strength and weakness of this school?" I asked that and my interviewer was highly impressed, he then told me I had his approval." Report Response
