What are your general comments?

"stayed at a cousins house. Let me tell you that the New Jersey Turnpike in the morning is chaotic during rush hour. I left around 8 am and arrive at the office at 9:30, an hour and a half later (normally would have taken 40 min). Interview was at 10 am, i arrived at 9:30, my interviewer did notice this point (so dont be late!!), receptionist greeted me very nicely, looked through some brochures on the school, interviewer came out 10 min later, a casual chat, then came back few mintues later to start the interview. Lasted about hour, then saw a video on the school, with one other prospective student (although they mentioned there was supposed to be 10 other students that time). An admissions counselor came in and answered all our questions, lasted about another hour, then left. the whole thing i would say was about 2 hours long." Report Response
