What are your general comments?

"My interview experience was really great, especially considering it was my first interview. My interviewer was really nice and casual. It was very conversational, and he only asked me maybe 3 real questions. The campus is small, but it's sufficient for the students' needs. I had really low expectations for the surrounding area because lots of people on this site have such negative comments about the Bronx, but it's not as bad as they make it out to be--you just can't go there expecting Manhattan. My interviewer even gave me feedback at the end of the interview, which was nice. I hope I get accepted there!" Report Response
