What are your general comments?

"The Admissions Director is extremely nice and stresses the fit factor. All of the waiting around was done in a comfortable room with computers, soft drinks and a tv. I was nervous about finding my faculty interview; they didn't really give great directions, but it all worked out. My faculty interviewer was really enthusiastic about the school and gave me lots of great information about living in Syracuse. The student interviewer picked me up in the waiting area, and was very chilled out, very friendly and went out of his way to show me some of the things that the tour didn't cover." Report Response
