What are your general comments?

"I liked the fact that you were not required to hang around the whole day. Most schools will have you show up at 8 or 9 in the morning even if your interview isn't until 10 or 11. Then they cram 10-30 nervous applicants into their waiting room to sweat it out for hours. WSU was not like that. There were only 8 applicants, and the student leading the tour said that this was the biggest tour group that he'd ever led. I was instructed to show up at the time of my interview, so there was not waiting around. Overall, the day was very low-stress and relaxed." Report Response
