What are your general comments?

"It was my first time, so although the admissions counselor tried puting us at ease, I had a very hard time relaxing. The Dean spoke with us very briefly, some students went off on a tour and had a financial aid presentation, while others interviewed. Then it was followed by lunch. Unfortunately only one student joined us for lunch and it was the same student who gave us the tour, so we didn't get any varying opinions. He was very nice, but it would have been good to have talked with more students." Report Response
