What are your general comments?

"I arrived at 10:30am. Make sure that you inquire about when your interviews are scheduled. They may alleviate the problem of having to wait until the orientation at 11am. After the orientation where we were introduced to an affable member of the admissions committee, Dr. Foxwell. We had lunch with myriad of students from the first to fourth years. They gravitated to specific spots in the room to sit and chat. Very informal. The M4s took us on the tour of the facilities. My interviews were scheduled in the afternoon, so I proceeded to them afterwards. If you've already had your interview, you are free to leave or mingle." Report Response
