What are your general comments?

"My two interviews were first thing in the morning. Then there was time to sit in on a class, have a tour, and eat lunch with students. Both of my interviews were laid back-one was with faculty, the other with a 4th year student. The student talked as much as I did, telling me about the school and how it is to be a student there if you aren't Mormon. It's just something to be aware of while you interview to see if you think you will fit in there or not. " Report Response
