What are your general comments?

"Really nice staff, straightforward interview style, I'd really like to go because I'm tired of all the competition at other schools, its too damn cutthroat at most schools. From talking to the students it looks like they are really all in it together, working their butts off, but having a good time too. The admissions people are incredibly nice, too. The financial aid guy was really thorough, which is good. I can't believe how jovial everyone was! I've been to three interviews so far and they were by far the happiest darned people I've ever seen in an interview setting! " Report Response
