What are your general comments?

"It was a very nice day. First thing was the tour. It was led by a few students. The facilites were very nice...newly renovated. Next was lunch. We had some catered meat and veggies. Then we waited in the lobby for our interview. They were generally between 15 and 25 minutes. The interview was a little more stressful than the others I have been to just because there was one lady (bad cop, probably)that was just drilling me on my poor science DAT scores. The others were nice though. After that, we were free to go. I think we got done around 2:30-3ish. Oh yeah...you get in-state tuition after a year, which is a big plus!" Report Response
