What are your general comments?

"The day was well planned out, they try and make you really relaxed with a powerpoint presentation about the school and financial aid, and you also have a personalized schedule of your day- everyone starts the same, then I had free time where you speak with students, then my interview, then lunch, then a tour. The interview was not stressful, but I've heard it depends on who you get, the students were so friendly and the facility is brand new and would probably be one of the nicest facilities to learn in" Report Response
