What are your general comments?

"The interview itself was great, one of the most enjoyable I've had so far. All three interviewers were very responsive and friendly. The day itself wasn't very scheduled. After the brief intro and financial aid presentation you just sit in the library and wait around for everyone to interview. You can check your e-mail or wander around, but no additional info about the school. Occaisionally a student pops in for some Q&A, which is really nice. By the time we got to the cafeteria for lunch most of the food was gone. Literally, one piece of pizza, a couple ladles of one soup left, half bowl of salad. Eat a big breakfeast. " Report Response
