What are your general comments?

"The day starts at 7:30. There is a introductory section and a long video. At about 9:00am the group interviews start. They ask you individual questions at first, then a general group question where you work it out together. It is relaxed and I think the questions seemed sensible and my group worked well together... it feels wierd to be watched... Then there is an individual meeting (waited around for about 1hour and 15min). All you do is add to your file and ask questions and talk... not really an interview. Then lunch and then a tour. Finally a PBL tutorial thingy where the Dean of Education talks about the program and works through a problem in the same style. Day ends at 3:00pm" Report Response
