"First, a talk about the school from the dean of admissions. Then a little about financial aid and a presentation about the new and exciting curriculum. A tour by two very nice students followed by lunch. Interviews are either in the morning or afternoon. If you miss the children's hospital tour, ask and you can get a special tour. It is worth it."
