What are your general comments?

"The day was supposed to start at 11:30 as it was an afternoon session. Didn't start until 12:15! We had lunch and met our 2nd year tour guides who were very cool. Had an excellent tour of the campus (NYCOM's portion of NYIT encompasses three buildings). The interviews were pretty conversational in nature so I don't know why I was so nervous. The day ended after our second interviews at about 3." Report Response
