What are your general comments?

"This interview was probably the most positive that I've had to date. While the school is very prestigious, they don't come off as sonbby at all! Everyone on the staff, from the people high up to the interviewers to the students, are very professional yet approachable and so nice to talk to. The campus and surrounding area are awesome and Hyde Park is a very cool place to get some real world experience. The school's programs, students, and faculty are all top notch - I will definitely be going here if I don't get into my top choice." Report Response
