What are your general comments?

"It was great. I arrived at the building to get my folder and the staff was very friendly. Then one of the staff members walked me to my interviewer's office and reassured me that I would do fine. The actual interview consisted of his going over my app with me and making sure the numbers were correct. Then he asked me a few questions and allowed me to ask him some questions. He said his job was to sell the school to me (which he did a good job of). After the interview we had a couple sessions and then the tour. The 2nd year students were wonderful! They honestly answered all my questions. Overall I had a good time at the school." Report Response
