What are your general comments?

"I had a late interview, so I didn't have to be at the school until 11:00. We had a presentation about the school, financial aid, the curriculum, etc. and then students gave us an abbreviated tour of the building that houses classes. Then we had lunch (it was good) in a conference room, a tour of the children's hospital, and sat around until our interviews. Altogether it was a relatively low-stress day." Report Response
