What are your general comments?

"Overall I had a great experience and was impressed by the school. I was especially impressed by the academic program. The school has quite a bit to offer outside of academics as well, with the Still-Well program and intramurals etc. I was impressed by the friendliness of the admissions staff, faculty, and students. Everyone tried very hard to make you feel welcome and at home. The interview day was long, and it ended with a short tour of the museum. I enjoyed that. Interviews themselves were not too stressful. The questions posted on this site were very helpful, and I was not asked anything out of the ordinary! I was not asked any situational or ethical questions." Report Response
