What are your general comments?

"The morning started off with a talk from the Dean of Admissions and it was very good because he was very honest with us and gave us a pretty informative powerpoint presentation. Then we sat in the waiting area and people got called in for interviews (the rooms are tiny). Both interviews were very laid back and the interviewers asked pretty typical questions. After that, lunch, tour of facilities which are pretty much on 2 floors of the building, and the dorm. The tour guide and others seemed to compare themselves to NYU a lot. I don't know if there is some competition between them... " Report Response
