What are your general comments?

"The whole day seemed like an interview. The five interviewees and a faculty member who later was also an interviewer met and had a very light breakfast. (Eat before you go) The faculty member was extremely nice and asked questions and talked about himself some until about 10:00am. Then the interviews began. All of the canidates sat in the Financial Aid/Admissions office while each was called in for the 30 min. interview. The five of us got along great and chatted about each others experiences. I think this really lightend the mood and made my interview go really well. During the interviews a few students and faculty members stopped in to say hello and answer questions. Everyone was so nice. The day ended around 1:30 pm after a tour around the campus/building." Report Response
