What are your general comments?

"The day began with dropping off a security questionnaire to the security office. After that a number of school officials gave us an introduction to USUHS that made me feel as if they were trying to give an honest presentation of the school to people who have a big decision to make. Then, there was a tour given by a 2nd year student followed by lunch with him. After lunch there were two interviews that were staggered enough in order to have time to speak with the school officals who addressed us in the morning. After the final interview at 4 o'clock we were free to go." Report Response
