What are your general comments?

"the tour was pretty short but that's prob cuz the school is tiny. but they share facilities with the other graduate programs and those are nice. they made us wait a bit but not for too long. we had to take a 30 min, 35 question math test. not too hard. u had to take a writing test too if u took the older pcat without the problem solving section. all the other candidates were very nice. three 4th yr students came in and asked us if we had any questions before we took the math test. they didn't really share anything upfront, we had to ask before they would share anything. i thought that was weird. everyone was very nice, even the interviewer. except he was kind of serious. the whole thing took about 2 hrs. i didn't think it was too disorganized."
