What are your general comments?

"I drove in from Ann Arbor and there was no traffic so I arrived really early. The staff was really friendly. They told me where my interviewer's office was and gave me some information about financial aid. They also informed me that Wayne State only extends offers once a month and that I wouldn't find out anything for at least 3 weeks:-( My interview was really relaxed. The interviewer just filpped through my file and asked me questions based on what he saw. We often went off on tangents and I think that he may have talked just as much as I did. Afterwards, I went back to the admissions office and waited with other students for the tour, which was cool. We had two tour guides so we could ask plenty of questions (an there was one gentleman who really took advantage). We sat down for a mediocre lunch and then I left. The whole thing took about 3 hours from start to finish." Report Response
