What are your general comments?

"I was so impressed by UC Irvine, that by the end of the day, it became my top choice of all of the schools that I have applied to. Why? It's simple -- Everything seemed to be very transparent. The faculty shows genuine care, advocacy and concern for the students' interests and progress. The students are very, very, very happy and it all neutralizes any sense of hostility. My faculty interview was only supposed to be 30-45 minutes long, but we ended up talking for well over 1.5 hours... simply due to the fact that everything about the school (even the interview) was so natural. I am thoroughly, thoroughly impressed." Report Response
