What are your general comments?

"After a negative interview day the day before, Wake seemed like a breath of fresh air. Everyone seemed happy to be there. The faculty was nice; interviews actually asked me relevant questions. The whole day was very informative. Prior to interviewing, when I looked at the schedule, I thought that the amount of time alloted for the information sessions was excessive. However, they were very useful to learn more about the school, the financial aid process (there and elsewhere), etc. Compared to other schools, Wake really tried and I felt like I was being wooed. Winston-Salem is lame but cheap living." Report Response
