What are your general comments?

"Got there at 10:45AM, waited around for about 10 minutes then a 4th year student came in and talked to us, then the dean of Admissions, then two first year students came in and took us to lunch and a tour. They brought us back to the original waiting room and we just sat for 45 minutes until our interviewers came in and got us. First interviewer took my to the coffee shop to interview and then brought me back to the waiting room and I immediately left to go with the second interviewer to his office. Financial aid never came because they had a meeting so they just dropped off packets, but they would have come in after the dean before the tour guides." Report Response
