"I loved my day at Howard. the students are very honest and down to earth. having gone to a city school, the environment is much like home and I can see that there is a lot of support/non-competitive atmosphere.

Great interviewer -very conversational. dont stress about this interview: Just be yourself - the interviewer will notice that and likely recommend you for admission." Report Response
