What are your general comments?

"We go to the admissions office, hand in the paperwork and one of the secretaries will bring us to the waiting room. That room consists of a oval table where we can sit with a division for 2 computers and a TV. There is a water cooler, and a minifridge along with information about schedules and of the school itself. It was very very well set up if I do say so myself. The admissions advisor came in and gave us an introduction and then left us to wait for our interviews. We have two interviews, one of which will be a student if you check of that it is ok for it. On the down time you are allowed to explore the neighborhood and sit in on classes or just go back to the admissions waiting room and... wait. It was pretty laidback and everyone was extremely friendly. One staff member went out of her way when she saw that I was lost and lead me to the location I needed. It was a great experience to interview at Upstate." Report Response
