What are your general comments?

"Dr. Kennedy addressed the group as a whole and asked us what was the best present we had ever given. Then had an ER doc speak to us and a financial aid woman. We then got our interview cards telling us where to go and when. I interviewed with Dr. Miller, a radiologist. She was really laidback and interested in what I had to say. Made me feel at ease. Then spoke with Dr. Werner, a pathologist. Again the interview was laidback and conversational. He really wanted to know about me as a person and why I did the activities and major that I had chosen. I spoke with Dr. Kennedy about my "file." He had no questions so we talked about football instead. :) Having the students come into the lounge/meeting room was nice. I really liked hearing why they went to LSU-S and about their experiences there. The tour did not impress me. Our tour guides were not enthuisiastic nor did they seem to want to talk about the facilities, school, or Shreveport." Report Response
