What are your general comments?

"Like everybody else says Get there early. Even though the day starts at 8:45 I would suggest getting there around 8 to 8:15. That allows you to get your interview out of the way and have the rest of the day to relax and enjoy the visit. I am happy that I arrived early and was able to get my interview done before anybody else. It made the rest of the day very stress free. After you get there they make you feel out the same secondary that you filled out for them already, you go visit a class, find out about financial aid and housing, eat, campus tour, and interview. Dont believe all that mumbo jumbo about the buildings being old they are fine. Yea they werent built last year but if you know anything about HBCUs you will be okay with the quality of the buildings. Also Xavier gets much love everywhere we go. Dr. Carmicheal has held it down for us. " Report Response
