What are your general comments?

"I love staying with a student and being able to pick his brain all night. He answered so many of my questions that I went into my interview feeling as though I already knew the school so well. The interviews themselves were laid back. It was a typical interview day. I slept in the Airport the night of the interview in Kansas City. I decided to go into town with my extra time in KC the night before I left. As luck would have it, a guy came into the sports bar where I was eating and offered me a Billy Joel ticket for the concert across the street. I had a blast with thousands of 40 somethings trying to dance. All-in-all I loved Kirksville, I felt at home there." Report Response
