What are your general comments?

"My visit to St. Louis was relatively positive. I didn't know very much about the school when I applied but after I visited, I had a positive impression of the school. The electives that appear in the website aren't really cracked up to be what they appear to be--according to my student host. Do not take a taxi if you have to. I took the Metro Train and it's much, much cheaper ($3 to the university and $1.25 back to the airport). It takes you directly from the airport to the university. Depending on when your interview is scheduled, you may be stuck in a large conference room with other applicants. If you have an afternoon interview, it might be in your favor as my interviewer spent more than an hour with me. From what I heard from the other applicants, the morning interviews lasted about half an hour. Then again, it may depend on who your interviewer is. " Report Response
