What are your general comments?

"It wasnt at all stressful. I had an afternoon interview whcih can be both good and bad. One negative thing about having it in the afternoon is that you have to come in a few hours early for the tour and everything, the good part though is after the tour I knew everything about the school and community , so if the interviewer asks any questions about the school or Brooklyn you already have a good idea of both. Overall it was okay, the tour guides were 3rd and 4th year students they were really nice and very helpful, so is the whole staff." Report Response
