What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview, and at first I didn't have any strong feelings either way, but as I interviewed at other schools this experience moved further and further down the list. There isn't much to the day: a brief intro about the 3 campuses, a tour, and the interview. No overview of the curriculum, no info on financial aid, not much of anything. I simply wasn't impressed. The interview itself was fine, very conversational. I suppose I would have gone there if I hadn't gotten in anywhere else, but thankfully that is not the case. " Report Response
