What are your general comments?

"I had a very good interview experience. My second interview was a 'walk-about' interview, meaning that my interviewer bought me coffee and walked through the campus and had a nice discussion. The interviewers are really laid back and only a couple of items pertaining to my file were mentioned in either interview. For the most part I felt like I was being introduced to someone, say at a dinner party, and we were just introducing ourselves and getting to know one another. Though tuition is a bit high, I felt that Case was a place I could call home for four years and get a great education as well." Report Response
