What are your general comments?

"the day is really short, i got there late in the morning, had two interviews, one with faculty, and then one with a student who i got a tour and lunch with before the interview. lectures start at 10, so if you are free then you can sit in on a lecture. there is little planned, so if you really want to see some things make sure you have an idea what those things are beforehand and tell the admissions staff or your tour guide and they can help you put it together."
