What are your general comments?

"Wonderful! The interview coordinator had everything very organized, the first and second year studens were sooo excited to talk to us, my interviewers were really nice and we talked so much, they actually lasted longer than planned, the tour of the facility was pretty quick so you don't have to worry about walking around too much in dress shoes, free mug and lunch! Oh, and an Office of Student Opportunities staff member comes to talk about the TRACK Program, and also the Financial Aid Office, great Q&A sessions, and we actually got to observe the first and second year students in lecture.
