What are your general comments?

"The interviews were close to on time, the interviewers were very nice, as were all of the admissions staff. I was able to attend a lecture and talk to a few students because I had an early interview, but that was not the case for the later interviews. After the interviews were over at noon we went on a tour and spoke to the student tour guide and a member of admissions. They help you to get NJ residency to save $10,000 on tuition from $33,000 to $23,000, very nice of them I think. It was around 2PM that we finished, and no luch was provided." Report Response
