What are your general comments?

"The day begins with the interview. Mine was at 9:30 AM. My interviewer's previous interview ran long, so mine was a little late. Since my interview ran a little long too, I wasn't able to sit-in on a class. It was optional anyway, so I just waited in the admissions office waiting room. Paul White gave a presentation on the school, and a financial aid representative spoke. Afterward, we were picked up by the student tour guides. My tour guide was really hilarious and enthusiastic, and the school was great. Lunch was the last activity of the day, and it was a great meal. " Report Response
