What are your general comments?

"overall awesome! the student interviewer was amazing! really cool guy who asked nothing difficult. it was definitely a conversation instead of an interview. we talked about my experiences, and his, for a whole hour and we would have kept on going. Then there was a 15min session with the Asst Dean of Adms who just asked how my day was going and what other schools i interviewed at. And then there was a faculty interview which was in another building, but they gave us a map so it was very easy and close to find. The faculty was amazing. Very friendly and down to earth. She even let me change my shoes in her office!!!THis was also a conversation about my experiences and life in Pitt. The energy at this place and the combination of city and suburbs is ideal. There is so much to do here and there are students everywhere since the undergrad is so close and there are so many other colleges in the area. Also the transport system is great and free for students with ID. This school is so awesome that i would definitely consider coming here if they accepted me. Maybe even better than Harvard..."
