What are your general comments?

"Overall, the interview went very well. Two days prior, I got an email informing me that they would want us to complete a writing sample in 10 minutes. So, as part of the process, we had to do this writing assignment. Other than that, the interview was great. Buffalo is a great school for the price. All total, when you factor in living expenses, it costs half as much as a private school in a big city (NYU, Tufts, BU, Temple, UPenn). The staff was very friendly and the students really seemed to enjoy it. Some of the students had turned down acceptances at some top schools to come to UB." Report Response
