What are your general comments?

"UMB left me with the impression that it was the place for me. Everything was well organized and scheduled to get out on time. The interview is four hours long containing an essay, a tour, a group panel interview, a student inteview, and an interview with a professor. From what I researched, the essay is basically a tool the school uses to see that you can communicate effectively. You do not need a prize winning essay, just make sure your thoughts are clear when writing. I enjoyed all my interviews and the student tour guides and interviewers made me feel comfortable. My advice is to just be yourself." Report Response
