What are your general comments?

"You begin the day in a board room with other applicants, the admissions staff goes over stats and what you're chances are, they cover financial aid, and then a detailed presentation of the packet they provide you with and a chance to ask lots of questions, then a tour. Then during lunch in the room with current students they pull you away to your interview, the presentation is continued when everyone gets back. A very relaxed and nice interview." Report Response
