What are your general comments?

"We started by gathering in what they call the fishbowl and the director of admission came in and welcomed us while going over the itinerary. We were then met by the professor of OMM and he took us up stairs where breakfast was accompanied by an informal conference. Then we returned to the fishbowl for afew hours as our names were called one by one. The time passed quickly though because it was exam day and quite afew of the students stopped in and spoke with us. Every one was very freindly even with the telltale bags under their eyes. The tour followed the interviews which only further impressed me with PCOM." Report Response
