What are your general comments?

"I got there around 8 (I think) and waited for everyone in my group to show up. Dr. Weir comes in, we do the chalk carving. No one talked to us about finanical aid- she was out of town that day. That's the one thing that I wish we would have gone into more detail about. Then half of us went on the tour and half went to the 1-on-1. I went on the tour. We got back and then went on our 1-on-1s. The lady who did mine was super nice. My 1-on-1 lasted only about 25 minutes-partly because I already knew the questions and partly because we got along so well. Then I got to go back to the room to wait for everyone else. We ate lunch and talked to current students. Then we had our 3-on-1. I went 3rd and had to wait about 30 minutes. Not bad. The 3-on-1 was the most nerve racking just because you don't know what they are going to ask. It lasted about 10 minutes and then I was free to go. " Report Response
