What are your general comments?

"I was scheduled to arrive at 9:45, and I arrived early. I was given information about the day and had an interview at 10am. It lasted an hour. My tour and lunch began at 12. I was allowed to leave by 1:30pm. However, there were many students interviewing with afternoon interviews so they had to do a lot of waiting. Also, only selected students were given two interviews. The interview was very conversational. You'll find that all the students love the school." Report Response
