What are your general comments?

"Absolutely great! Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. The students seemed really happy to be enrolled there. The interview is completely relaxed and low-stress.

Also, their admission department seems to be closely knit, so be nice and sociable to EVERYONE...I'm pretty sure their feedback matters" Report Response
