What are your general comments?

"Overall it was very good experience. The day started with presentations about the school and financial aid. They did a good job of selling the school. Then the interviews. The interviews here are very structured. You actually sit down with two people at the same time and they ask you four standardized questions and aren't allowed to respond. Then the remaining time is more conversational. The interview only lasts 25 minutes and they are strict about that. Afterwards there is lunch and a tour with some of the students. " Report Response
