What are your general comments?

"Well, I showed up about an hour early for my interview. There were about 9 other interviewees in the fishbowl when I arrived. A discussion was held on financial aid information and then we just chatted until it was time for us to interview. The students, faculty and other candidates were all extremely nice. The only stress of the interview was how nervous I was to do well. Then we took a tour and had a nice lunch. Thats it!!! Nice school, nice people. I've heard it was located in the suburbs but it gave me the impression of a compact busy little city.....not suburban. But, I am from a very small town in the south." Report Response
