What are your general comments?

"The whole interview day was pretty laid back. They first talk to you about PBL. Then they go straight into the interviews. After the interview they talk about housing options and then you get to sit in on a 2 hour PBL session which is really cool. After that you eat lunch with a few 2nd years, they tell you about financial aid, and they talk about the PBL program some more. It's all over by 2:30pm." Report Response
