What are your general comments?

"In the morning there were about 15 students in the admissions office. Apparently it was larger than usual because there were too many of us to fit in the applicant lounge. The dean spoke to us at a large table. (This was my second interview and I was intimidated by how close we were to the Dean when he was speaking.) Then people from the admissions office came to talk about pamphlets about financial aid and programs at Rochester in our packet. There was no official financial aid presentation(if IRC, it was about a month ago). Then they explained our schedules and invited us to see lectures and reminded us to be on time for our interviews. One interview was with a student in the morning. Then I sat in a lecture and then there was lunch with two 4th years and a tour. The lunch ran so long, that I missed part of the tour to go to my interview. You don't have to leave the building to go to any interviews but the building is so confusing it doesn't matter anyway. Then after the afternoon interview I got to go home. Not everyone had a schedule with interviews in the morning and afternoon. Check the website the week before you interview and the times and the names of your interviewers are listed. " Report Response
