What are your general comments?

"I stayed with a first year student who made me bring my own pillow and towel to her apartment - not to mention her and 3 of her classmates stayed up studying for their test until midnight (why then, did she volunteer to host?) Unfortunately I had to rent a car for less than 40 miles total roundtrip.....one of my interviewers left me with a sour taste in my mouth (though my other interviewer put me at ease). The school of course is in a beautiful place, the facilities are a mix of new and old (new library is very nice!) The curriculum is going to be revised in February (the admissions officer is uncertain of the changes that will come)...." Report Response
