What are your general comments?

"All the interviewees get to sit I a room that is juts for them. Then they come talk to you for a little while about the school and some other useful information ( I don’t remember it all but you will learn what you need to know). Then everyone splits off and goes to find their various faculty interviewers around the campus. The interview was really relaxed and very conversational. Afterwards there is time to sit in on some classes ( which I would recommend, they have nice lecture halls) and walk around and explore the campus. Then lunch is provided and there is a financial aid talk. Next there is a tour of campus (library, cafeteria, etc..) by some students which is a good time because they are relly honest and answer a lot of you questions. And then its back to the room you start in to wait to get picked up by your student interviewer and its off to that interview and then your done. The student interview is also pretty relaxed and conversational but there were a few more “structured” questions. The whole day is really pleasant and a great experience to meet and get to know the students and some of the staff." Report Response
