What are your general comments?

"The dean is new, but pleasant enough to talk to; I felt some of the answers to our questions were vague. Dr. Haight is swell and no-holds-barred, which I liked. We had a presentation on the public health dual degree program, then a tour with a student who was enthuastic but in a somewhat contrived way, then the group interview, then lunch...I think it was in that order. It was my first interview of the season, and it was a good start, but I just couldn't see myself going there. I declined the acceptance for another school. " Report Response
