All in all, it was a great interview day." Report Response

"Though the 12th floor is apparently being renovated, right now it appears a little shoddy. The anatomy lab looks like it could get crowded and the lecture room looks like it could get pretty cramped after a 2 hour lecture. " Report Response

"I don't really wish that I had known this ahead of time, but I'll use this spot to talk about Aron Hall. In terms of housing, I don't think that it gets much better than Aron Hall.
