What are your general comments?

"Well, the day was fine. Students came and spoke with us about what they like about Howard and administrators came in to chat with us. I have been to other interviews, but I kind of expected to wait a little while at Howard's (from what I have heard). I wasn't stressed, so that made the wait more bearable. Also, you definitely get that "family" feeling. But I wonder if that can get to be a little too much at times." Report Response
