"The whole day is pretty relaxing. You start off by just mingling in a room with other interviewies. Then the Dean of Admissions comes and gives an overview of the process and answers any questions about the school etc. You then have your tour with current students and come back and eat lunch. You spend the whole afternoon talking with each other and the current students. You are given your interview timeslot in the morning and when its your time to interview your interviewer comes and gets you from the room. The interviews last a half hour. When you are done you come back to the room and continuing talking with the students. " Report Response
