"How small Hanover is." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The school is located in a picturesque region of Hanover, and the entire campus is impressive because of the architecture and what not. Small introduction to the school and financial aid. Then shuttle to the hospital, which is like a giant mall, and lunch with students. Everyone I talked to likes the school and is happy. At the same time, I just didn't feel a great deal of excitement. Interviews were very relaxed and conversational, so don't stress about that. Just use the interview to gauge if you'd actually like to go to the school." Report Response
