What are your general comments?

"Basically it goes how everyone else says it does. They try to sell you the school in the morning, and you try to sell yourself to the achool (at least during your interviews) in the afternoon. It is really low stress. My interviewers were very friendly and tried to put me at ease. I love this school and I can't say enough good things about it! If anyone who is reading this is holding a spot in the class and is sitting on the fence about whether or not they like the school, please, please give up your spot so I can have it!"
