What are your general comments?

"This is a good school. I applied early decision, so there were but a few of us. Our interviews were one-on-one, and it was clear that if Dr Kennedy did not ask you to apply early decision, then you probably should not, unless you are a stellar student and a good fit in his opinion. if you have the opportunity, and sincerely wish to attend this university, please visit Dr Kennedy in his office a few times prior to your application. Ask his opinion of your credentials and record. He does not want gunners who are going to alienate themselves from the class. Ask for his suggestions on how you can improve your record. Tell him you will do as he asks, then visit later to show him you have. Very simple. Best of luck to you. This is a fine school. " Report Response
