What are your general comments?

"we all got in on time through security (yes, it's very strict, but the guy was friendly), then we introduced ourselves twice, once to a (the?) dean, another time to the admissions people. half went on a tour, the other half went on interviews: 4 30-min sessions with 2 interviewers to one person. then some living spaces talks and a financial aid talk some time in there. ultimately, i was accepted, but declined the offer because while i think it'll be a GREAT school in 10 years, i don't want to be part of a 'guinea pig' class. the stats for the board pass rate are as yet unknown. also, the $1500 deposit was just too much for a school i was only lukewarm about."
