What are your general comments?

"Overall the interview was amazing. It satrted off rather interestingly when the director of Admissions came in and pointed out interesting facts from each of the interviewees files. After that we went for a 30min powerpoint presentation of the school (virtual tour). Then an amazingly helpful 4th year came in and answered all of our questions, while each of us where waiting to be interviewed. After the interviews there was a financial aid presentation followed by lunch in the cafeteria and tour of living quarters and hospital. " Report Response
