What are your general comments?

"The day was pretty fun. We started off in the admissions off (filled with lots of really nice people) and watched a video that had UMDNJ students in it and what they've done (ie gone on the Price is Right, Regis, Wheel of Fortune, etc). We then went on a tour of the facilities, saw the classrooms, talked to a few students, and had lunch at the cafeteria. We then waited for our interviews, which were really laid back and more of just a conversation. They really just wanted to get to know me. The Adcom meets on the third Friday of every month, so a week after the interview I got the call from Paula Watkins and was accepted! Will hopefully be attending next fall." Report Response
