What are your general comments?

"The day started at 8:15 with breakfast with one of the deans. He was very friendly and tried to reassure us about the interview. Then we basically had to sit in a room for 3 hours while waiting for all the interviews to be completed. During the wait a financial aid officer came to talk to us and was not very helpful. She just told us we'll basically be taking loans out. Also, about 6 current students came in to talk to us, answer any questions, and told us about their experience at PCOM. The interview was very short and not stressful at all. Once all the interviews were completed we went on a tour. The campus is beautiful, and they have very modern and hands-on facilities. If I get into PCOM, I will be going there!" Report Response
