What are your general comments?

"All the applicants who had interviews that day were brought to one room to wait, so we chatted and relaxed until our individual interviews. Then we had a presentation on the school by the Assoc. Dean of Admissions, who was great. We were supposed to have a financial aid presentation too, but the dean went overtime so the financial aid person gave us her number to call with any questions. After the presentation (which was pretty interesting and not too long), we had lunch with some of the first- and second-year students, then they took us on a tour in small groups (two students for three applicants). Then the day was over." Report Response
