What are your general comments?

"Drove from Phoenix to Tucson. For some reason Tucson has most of the I-10 exits closed for the next few years. They couldn't just work on them one or two at a time, so they closed them all. Schedule yourself extra time to navigate the poor city planning. Showed up about 30 minutes early. There were about 10 of us in the interview group and we chatted. Received a brief overview of the day and the admissions process from Tanisha who was very friendly and helpful. Was escorted off to the interview. Interviewed (closed file) for about 45 minutes. Met with a couple of 1st year students and had lunch with them. It was actually very good. Got a short tour of the facilities. This was the only school that didn't let you see the anatomy lab...something about respect for the dead. Then we met with another admissions guy who talked more about the programs and fielded questions. Checked out at the admissions office and went home." Report Response
