What are your general comments?

"My interview experience was definitely unique. The day started with a tour of the campus at 8:00a.m. in which a 4th year student took us around thje facitities. We had financial aid, housing, and various program talks after the tour. Associat Dean Ellena Peterson then came in and we went around introducing ourselves and telling her one interesting thing about us. She outlined the process for the evaluation of our applications so there were no mysteries when we got home. Next came lunch (which was great!!), followed by the student interview and then a faculty interview. The day was well-planned so that we would feel absolutely at home." Report Response
