What are your general comments?

"Awesome school!! This is my first choice! :) The admissions office is really nice. I missed the financial aid talk and the tour because one of my interviews was scheduled at the same time. The secretary got materials for me and showed me where I could go to talk to people about financial aid. And she found me a student to show me around/take me on a tour - if she hadn't been able to, she said she would have shown me around herself! Awesome!" Report Response
