What are your general comments?

"The interview day is very casual. They only interview once every two weeks, so the group is large. But, most of the applicants are very relaxed and fun. The student interview is usually first, and is right after/during lunch. Very conversational and friendly. The faculty interview was more interogative, but not too bad either. I couldn't help but be under-impressed with the school itself: the facilities appear very dated and in need of renovation, or maybe a lot of new construction. Still, the students are very happy and close-knit, and the location is great. Irvine is a good school." Report Response
