What are your general comments?

"Day starts with a quick overview, then two 1 hour interviews and a quick 20 min interview (largely just administrative) but not necessarily in that order. Then lunch with students, financial aid presentation, pres. about facilities, and campus tour. My first hour interview went really well. She really was just trying to get to know me as a person. The 2nd hour...not so much. He basically grilled me on one point for the entire hour and never let me complete a thought before he attacked another area. And he never seemed satisfied with the limited explanation that he actually allowed me to get out. Overall I was pretty impressed with the school but that interview really shook me up."
