What are your general comments?

"The day starts at 9:00 with an hour long power point show about the schools history and curriculum. Next is a student tour of the school followed by interviews at 11 and 12. More waiting until your student interview can see you, then you have your student interview over lunch. More waiting until you get a lecture about the PIL program (which is optional). Day ends about 3:00 or so." Report Response
