What are your general comments?

"I was extremely impressed by VCU. The fact that ''the powers that be'' are pouring a great deal of money into the surrounding area and facilities shows (and gives the impression) they are committed to having superb facilities. I felt that this also indicates a significant commitment to improve the learning environment for students. I chose to have my interview at the 9am time slot. Definitely go for the morning time slots (if available). You will be worn down after the whole interview day since the tour involves a fair amount of walking. I had a good time with my interviewer; I felt like I was able to give him a picture of ''me'' and my motivations beyond my numbers and essays. " Report Response
