What are your general comments?

"I didn't feel the day was planned to really impress us. We got there by 7:45, listened to a 15 min financial aid presentation, then sat around during everyones interview. Took a tour of the school with some students, then ate lunch. The day was short and mostly filled with sitting around. Come prepared with questions to ask your interviewers...overall though the program is strong and the students we met really loved it so far. Great school and excellent opportunities being close to Chicago. " Report Response
