What are your general comments?

"arrived at 7:45, signed in with security and got a visitors badge, was taken to a conference room with 5 other people who were being interviewed, they had coffee and food and a folder with info about the PBL, appartments, clubs at the school, financial aid info, Dean came in and told us about himself and then briefly about the school, assistant dean talked about PBL, and why they started a campus in florida, talked about himself, then we got an article to read for 10 min, interviews started, closed file, they knew nothing about me so it was hard to pick and choose what i wanted them to know, then went back to conference room where they told us about where we could live if we went to the school, and the clubs at the school, then we say in on a 2 hour PBL session, i thought it was going to be long and boring, but i really enjoyed it, its a good way to see if the school is a fit for you, i was able to understand what they were talking about to some extent. Then lunch with two students, they served chips and wraps. One of the students said she NEVER went out, pretty much only studied, the other studnent had a more well rounded life, went out, studied, said that the tests werent hard if you put the time in, he also had a gf. One thing he said was that the anatomy is the first ten weeks of the first year and its intense, dont have time to do much but study the first 10 weeks. Next we got a short financial aid talk, and then met with the assistant dean again, he asked us each to say what we thought of PBL, AND asked us to write down on a piece of paper how much learning took place in PBL, just to warn you HE thinks that only 1% of learning takes place in the PBL sessions, and that most of the learning occurs on your own. Then we had a tour...out by 2:30" Report Response
