What are your general comments?

"It's a LONG day, however, it really gives you the opportunity to see what it would be like to spend a lot of time there. First we wrote a quick essay, and sat in on a class. Then the Clinical Director gave us a talk. Then Janelle (the Admissions Director) told us everything we needed to know about Pacific and Financial Aid. Then a representative from Student Services came and talked for about 15 minutes. Then lunch. Then tours and interviews. Last, everyone got together and had dessert and talked with the faculty (my favorite part). " Report Response
