What are your general comments?

"Met with dean, met with financial aid, met with more admissions peeps, had lunch, had tour, had interviews. The meetings in the morning were long but informative, the lunch was just time to hang out with other interviewees, and the tour was basically whatever we wanted to see. In the afternoon I met with my interviewers, one at the main campus and one across town. Both were relaxed and just wanted to get to know me. The second interviewer was interrupted three times by phone or knock, which was annoying, but they were both nice and genuine." Report Response
