What are your general comments?

"Great interview, laid back and friendly but also very thorough. No "tricky" questions whatsoever just wanted to get to know the man behind the papers. Hotel- The hotel was close to the school but the lack of internet access really sucked because it was almost impossible to look at SDN and the school website, which I like to do the night before. The student tour was great, given by a 4th year who was not necessarily out to sell us. She answered all of our questions thoroughly and gave an honest and realistic view of the school, including the things she didn't like - This was refreshing. Financial Aid Talk - Standard Financial aid Talk $X in need based grant/scholarship the rest is subsidized/unsubsidized fed loans and another graduate PLUS Loan if needed. Nice because it was short and to the point." Report Response
