What are your general comments?

"The day started off with an orientation and talk by a member of the admissions office, and then someone from financial aid. Both were very friendly, open and informative. After a nice lunch, there was a tour given by two students - one a first year, the other a second year. Both really liked the school and gave a good tour. After that, there were two interviews (although a couple people only had one). I had two facutly interviews, while some people's second interview was with a student. Both faculty members that I met with were great and while I was asked a few difficult questions, it was still fairly easy going and low stress." Report Response
