What are your general comments?

"the interview day is pretty typical. everything starts with a presentation by the admissions director on the history of the school and the curriculum. unlike most schools, you only get one interview, so its a little hit or miss. like i said before, i think they might match applicants up to interviewers based on shared interests. my interviewer is on the admissions committee, which came out during the course of our conversation. that was a little forward, but we got along very well. after the interview you have lunch with students and tours. the tours are a lot longer than most but you have to stick around because they go over the admissions process in a talk later in the afternoon.
