What are your general comments?

"We get there pretty early--7:30am--and have breakfast. Then there is an orientation regarding general info and admissions. Assistant Dean Lapin is great. Then we wait. There are two interviews (at least for mine), one in a group (3 interviewees and 3 interviewers) and one with an admissions committee member. I liked the second one a lot. The group interview wasn't bad--the only thing I didn't like about it is that I feel I didn't get much time to really let them get to know me. I feel like they really didn't get to know the real me like they may have if it was just me. The group project was fun and I was glad that we got the question we did. " Report Response
