What are your general comments?

"The day began with a presentation from the Associate Dean for Admissions as well as the Financial Aid director. The first interview was at 11:00 a.m., followed by lunch and a group tour of the campus. The next interviews were staggered-mine was at 2:30, so I had to wait for a while. Both interviews were really conversational and laid back. I don't feel the interviewers had an agenda of what they were supposed to ask-only what they really wanted to know about you! In fact, my first interviewer did not ask any questions after we talked about my research-we just talked about MUO and where it is headed in the future. The second interview lasted an hour and a half-I really enjoyed talking with my interviewer-he was really laid back and conversational. The overall impression of the school was positive-and it seems this relatively young program is headed in the right direction for the future." Report Response
