What are your general comments?

"After checking in at the admissions office, interviewees are shown to a room that serves as ''home base'' for the afternoon, with a conference table, sofas, a refrigerator with beverages, a television, and computers with internet access. The first interview is around 9:00 AM. Students then are encouraged to sit in on classes in progress and explore some of the facilities until lunch at 11:30 AM. While eating lunch, we were briefed on what to expect with the process after interview day and encouraged to fill out FAFSA forms early to avoid problems. Three students showed us around Weiskotten Hall, answering any questions we had throughout the tour. My second interview was at 1:30 PM, and I was on the road by 2:30PM." Report Response
