What are your general comments?

"Laid Back! The day started with a brief intro and simple paperwork. This was followed by lunch with two students and then a tour. The student's were happy to be at WVU and had good things to say about the school. Though they did not mention the construction that is underway to improve the school. Which kind of suprised me because in its current state the school is somewhat worn down. Though construction on a new library is already started and a Neuroscience facility is coming soon. Tour was followed by my interview that would have been two-on-one had one of my interviewers not fallen ill. the interview was converstaional and lasted about an hour even though it was only suppossed to last half an hour. Overall, I think the program is great but the facilites were not so great. Last but not least, there was no real information session or financial aid presentation which left me feeling a bit unfulfilled." Report Response
