What are your general comments?

"We got there and signed in and waited in the office. There were a lot of people crowded in a small place so they moved us to a room upstairs that was very warm. We took a math and essay test (not bad). Then we interviewed. We never got a tour b/c our student guide was running late...so she only proctored our exams. We were led to our interviewers office where we waited outside to be called in. He was running behind and was still interviewing people from the last hours group. He was very tired and stuck in an office that had no a/c so he was uncomfortable and looked like he wanted to go home. The interview was quick but good." Report Response
