What are your general comments?

"The day is somewhat long but informative about the school. Lunch was provdied. It started with an orientation, admissions people speaking, financial aid and students presenting what Jeff had to offer. The interview was a really low key. The student interview was very casual. It was a great chance to just ask questions about the school. We just talked and walked outside. My faculty interview was great. He already knew stuff about my file and didn't refer to it during the interview. It was more like a conversation than Q and A. Overall a great impression. " Report Response
