What are your general comments?

"we got there mad early, but it was a quick walk from the dorm. we had an hour long orientation thing with one of the admissions deans, including a short video made by feinberg students. they had a light breakfast served. then we had two hours of interviews, both group and individual, and free time. the individual interview is more like, is all hte info in your file correct. then we has lunch/tour with some students. the facilities were awesome, lunch was good, etc. we went back for a brief talk about the curriculum and an example of a pbl session. the dreaded financial aid talk has apparently been replaced. then we chatted informally with some current students that stopped by. the day ended around 3:30, and we were all exhausted."
