What are your general comments?

"It was a wonderful experience overall. I can't say I love the Houston weather, but the school seems to more than make up for it with it's facilities, students, and faculty. I have to admit I hadn't given Houston much interest before, but now I know I'd really enjoy going there. Staying with a student host was great. She told me tons about the school and she helped get me to the right place the next morning. You can have either morning or afternoon interviews, just depends on what group you get. My first interview lasted for an hour (really casual and conversational), the second for 30 min (more typical question and answer). The lunch was good. " Report Response
