What are your general comments?

"I got to the school early and found everywhere I needed to be and then went a relaxed in the cafeteria. The morning started with everyone relaxing or trying to, around the table in the conference room. We then had briefings from the various deans and commandant. The interview times were given out and you had lunch and a tour given by a student. The student area has Wi-Fi, there are coffee bars, great study areas, and the cafeteria was good. The afternoon was interspersed with the 2 interviews and time to talk to people on the admissions committee. I would highly suggest talking to Col Tashiro, he's the commandant and very friendly. My interviewers were both great. My first was a female major and she wasn't real interactive other than asking the questions, so when it was my turn I asked her some questions and got into a dialog that ended up making it a great 2-way discussion and great interview. The second was a Navy LtCmdr and he was great. Even showed me the sheet they have to fill in and the area they looked at. Overall, I had a great day and came out of the experience knowing that was where I wanted to go to school. They are also very prompt on getting letters out. I got my acceptance letter within 2.5 weeks of my interview." Report Response
