What are your general comments?

"Overall the experience was good. I like how they have a detailed information session explaining the curriculum, financial aid, etc., as well as the campus tour before the interview. This gives the opportunity to gain more knowledge and form an opinion about the school before having to explain your interest in the school during the interview. I was not too thrilled with how much I had to wait around. They told us to arrive by 9:15 am, so I got there about 9:00 to be on the safe side. Then when I checked in they told me that they would begin the day at 10:00. Why don't they just tell us to get there at 10:00? Then after the tour I had to wait around for 2 hours before my interview. It made for a long day. " Report Response
