What are your general comments?

"Overall a good experience. The tours were helpful. After my first interview, I would suggest taking my interviews in the afternoon. The tours always give an excellent idea of the pros of the school, and this question always comes up at length in the interview. I wouldn't recommend an afternoon interview for the first one however, since I was a little too nervous to pay attention." Report Response
