What are your general comments?

"The interview day was relaxed and everyone was friendly. The day begins with breakfast with a professor and a few students. I was nervous so I didn't really want to eat anything. But the students are great for answering all your questions. Then you go right to the interviews. I was first and when my interview was over we just sat in the ''fishbowl'' for 3 hours until everyone was finished interviewing. Students would stop in and say hi and answer any questions we had. Then there is a tour and the whole day is over by 1pm. I got my acceptance letter two weeks after my interview and I can't wait to begin school at PCOM in the fall!" Report Response
