What are your general comments?

"The adcom office serves as sort of a home base where about 10-15 interviewees meet. There is a 2 hour tour of a geographically confusing facility, but I get lost everywhere. This is followed by a financial aid/curriculum info session. Then a student interview (~1 hour), a faculty interview (60 min), and 15 min interview with Dean Curtiss. I was very impressed with Pitt. They market themselves as a school "with heart" and I thought they were pretty convincing, having worked in similar environments. Note: Pay attention to the curriculum discussion. " Report Response
