What are your general comments?

"I stayed with a student host, who was really great and fun to hang out with. She dropped me off at the admissions office in the morning, where there was some food (bagels and pastries) and coffee. The staff was very welcoming and the applicant group as a whole was very interesting and fun. There was an opening remarks presentation in the morning, then some people had interviews scheduled. I didn't so I just hung out at the library and sat in on the first year lecture. I wish we had a chance to see the small group sessions, but the lecture was pretty fun too. According to the students it was one of the less important ones, so they were all just hanging out, talking to each other, one was even watching an episode of Lost on his laptop. Overall they were very friendly, and I got a sense that they balance studying hard and relaxing pretty well. After the lecture, we had a financial aid presentation then lunch while one of the deans went over the curriculum. After that we had time to talk to the students and were given a tour. Then I had my interviews. The faculty interviewer was pretty standard - he wanted to know about my study abroad experience, my research experience, told me a little about Case and Cleveland. My student interviewer was more relaxed, he mostly just told me about the school, I don't really remember talking about myself too much - just the standard questions as well. I got a pretty bad headache somewhere during the day, so the second half of it really dragged on for me, which is too bad because I really liked the school and wanted to make a good impression. I was finally done around four." Report Response
