What are your general comments?

"The day started out with a presentation by numerous faculty and administration. Although the presentations were very long, it was a great learning experience. This was followed by a brunch with current students, and they encouraged us to ask as many questions as we wanted. Next, the students took us on a tour of the facilities. The interview followed the tour, and lasted 30 minutes. Since there were so many students there, you were interviewed by either a faculty member or administration, but there was only one interviewer. The interview was extremely layed back and was more of a conversation than an interview. They expressed that the purpose of the interview isn't to grill the students, but rather to get a sense of whether you have personal skills and can communicate well in person. Overall, I was greatly impressed by the school, and the program definitely exceeded my expectations." Report Response
