What are your general comments?

"The day started with an information session given by students, and also staff who came in to present different topics (financial aid, office of multicultural affairs). We then met one-on-one with a first year student before lunch. After lunch, we were broken up into small groups and given tours by a student. Interviews followed. My interviewer was very laid back and we basically just talked about my background, family, school, work and volunteer experience, etc. Then there was an afternoon social hour where we could schmooze a little more with admissions faculty."
