What are your general comments?

"I flew in the night before, rented a car (the school is about 25 miles from Chicago Midway Airport), and stayed at the Comfort Inn. The day started around 8:30 AM (eat at your hotel beforehand) and the interviews concluded around 10:00 AM. Parking on campus is free, and they offer you a place to put your luggage if you don't have any other options. While you are waiting for your interview, students pop in and offer you the chance to ask questions. After a brief financial talk, a student gives a campus tour and the school offers you lunch. The last two activities can be skipped if you need to leave town. " Report Response
