What are your general comments?

"They tell you to show up at 11AM, but nothing happens till 12:30. The first part of the day is spent listening to the director of admissions give his schpeele. He seems like he'd make a good car salesman, and is kind of aggressive in the way he talks about admissions. Don't worry though, because the 2 interviews are the MOST laid back I've ever seen, even more than UVM. Make sure you have plenty of questions, becuase after about 10-12 minutes of asking you questions, the interviewers spend the rest of the time answering YOUR questions. So prepare accordingly.
