What are your general comments?

"The day was very well organized and one of the shortest, which was nice. We watched a small presentation and then the interviewers came in and got us. My first interviewer was a M3 and she was so nice... really helped me to relax. My next interviewer was faculty and she was a bit more intense but still very nice. After that we had lunch and took a tour. The students were great and seemed to really love the school and Lexington. I got a call the next week letting me know I was in! I am almost 100% sure this is where I will be next year." Report Response
