What are your general comments?

"Interview day was well planned, with an orientation in the morning and then a Student guided tour. The Dean of Admissions gave the orientation, and she was super friendly and funny. After the tour, I had my interview with the Dean, lasted 40 minutes and it was mostly conversational. Then I had a lunch interview with a student who was a bit quirky but very nice. He told me after lunch that he would write me a positive review! Overall, it was a good day!" Report Response
