What are your general comments?

"Overall, it was very positive. The faculty, staff and students were really friendly. There was even a professor who came during her lunch to talk with the interviewees that were waiting in the lobby their next interviews. It was great because it was very informal and she was there to just help with any questions we had. In addition, it was great how you can sit and eat lunch with M1s and M2s to ask anything you would like in an informal setting. You got to get a feel for the type of students that attend the university and actually see their personality." Report Response
