What are your general comments?

"They say there are two interviews but there's really only one and thats the closed file. The second interview aka exit interview is just going thru. your file to see if anything is missing, and they just wanted my fall grades sent to them. I had the exit interview right after my actual interview. Since i got the stressful things out of the way first, i was able to enjoy the rest of my visit there. There is also free parking at the school. I got to know just last week that I was accepted. Good luck to all." Report Response
