What are your general comments?

"The day was well organized and it is obvious that the administration wants to attract good candidates. The only ''hitch'' in my day came up during my interview with a 4th year student (new feature in the interview process) because they forgot to forward him my file. But we ended up having a good interview regardless. If anything, I was sold on the school just based on how happy the students were and how willing they were to offer insight and advice.
