What are your general comments?

"It was such a great day. I really enjoyed the chance to talk to so many prospective students... be warned that I think they observe how you interact with those there, as they are looking for how well you would fit into the community. The day was nice, with breaks right when you needed them. The interviewers were all nice and really relaxed (at least for me). Overall, a wonderful experience." Report Response
