What are your general comments?

"After dodging homless people and agressive beggers, I made my way upstairs and walked into a room of 40 others to be interviewed. We sat through 2 hours of lectures (while trying to see through the heads in front of me) covering information about the school. Lunch was available, then they spoke a bit more. The majority of us sat in the room for quite a while before our first interview or tour. I was unable to make a flight home that night because the day dragged on longer than neccessary."
