What are your general comments?

"Well, I arrived a bit early and sat with the other candidates in the lobby. We then had a presentation on OSU and Finanical Aid. I hate sitting in the same seat for too long, so that part dragged a bit for me. We then had lunch and went on a tour of the facilities. After that, was the student interview with a 2nd year. That was good, just a basic back and forth talk. He was trying to get a feel for me, to see how I would fit in I imagine. The faculty interview went well, but he made some interesting points. One of his more remarkable comments was that he wasn't sure if he would rather be treated by some of the ''best'' students in his own graduating class, or some of the ''worst.'' You could tell he's been doing this for a while, and just had a lot of fascinating views. If I spoke 10% of the time I was in there, it was a lot." Report Response
