What are your general comments?

"I got there - very early - and interviewed before the orientation. Orientation was a bit random - the dean was very sincere and just speaking (without powerpoint). Then we had the tour (coudln't see the inside of classrooms b/c there were classes). Then I had my student interview, that was very interesting, easy and fun. Overall really relaxed, informative and fun." Report Response
