"I arrived around 8:30 and waited in the student lounge and watched sportscenter on the big screen TV. Four lovely ladies later joined as they were to be interview as well. There were 2 interviews total. My first one was with the remedial director and was very conversation-like. I couldn't believe it actually lasted 60 minutes.

Once everyone was done there was the financial aid spiel and then lunch and a tour. very nice." Report Response
