What are your general comments?

"1 interview that lasted 20 minutes exactly. You are in there with 2 interviewers. They tell you from the start that this interview is entirely closed file, so they know nothing about you except your name. They also tell you that they can't talk to you or elaborate on questions, but can only repeat them. This sounds intimidating, but they still smile and nod during the interview so you don't feel like you're talking to yourself. The tour was very good! Instead of being with 10 other students, I was only with 3 others. Thus it was very intimate and allowed for personal questions. I love this school. Although I'm out of state, I wouldn't mind going here at all." Report Response
