What are your general comments?

"I was so pleasantly surprised with VCU. I'd never been to Richmond, but the campus was so quaint and it's tucked in the corner of downtown so it's kinda in it's own little area. The asst. dean met me at the front door and then we had a brief intro to the school with a power-point. First was my student-faculty interview for 20 mins, 10 min break, student-alumni interview for 20 mins, 10 min break, 1 hr tour, break, and then 40 min to write the essay (If you were given undesirable hours b/c your coworker has kids, how would you handle the situation?)"
