What are your general comments?

"The day was by far the most informative day of any other interviews i went on to. I have found the information very useful, not necessarily in regards to UConn itself. Dr. Thibodeau was very sincere and understanding, motivating. Students were nice, and i did not find the rumor of UConn bragging about their board results - rather I saw it in other schools too, and to me it was just a fact that was not stressed as others have felt. Overall, I left satisfied with everything i learned." Report Response
