What are your general comments?

"The interview day programming began at 11am and concluded at 1pm. Interviews were held before or after the programming. The dean of students begins with an overview of the application process and exactly what happens after the interview. Next we ate lunch from Bagel Boys. It was nothing special, but it wasn't bad. Then a faculty member explained the curriculum and answered questions. I really enjoyed the faculty member he was candid with his responses and clearly voiced his pros and cons of the curriculum. Finally a financial aid officer explained everything money related. After this it was off to my interview. The interview was very laid back. There were no probing questions or deep philosophical questions. Most of the time we discussed research and the different courses I had taken. Overall it was a relaxing afternoon and I really enjoyed my visit. " Report Response
