What are your general comments?

"The interveiw was extremely laid back. There were three of us interviewing that day and I enjoyed getting to know the other applicants. I had it arranged to shadow some first year classes in the morning and tour the university. After lunch we all met on the 4th floor of the Starling-Loving building and watched a 20 minute presentation on OSUs optometric business curriculum. Then we rotated through a tour of the facilities, a talk with the financial aid guy, and the actual interview. " Report Response
