What are your general comments?

"Overall it is a great little school. The faculty is GREAT! The two people that interviewed my group was grrrrrreeeeeeeaaatttt and really made sure everyone had time to speak and kept stress down. I was really worried about the group style but end the end enjoyed it. I just don't think that they can really know everyone in a group setting though. The essay was easy and it was an ethical question on cheating. Overall if you are looking for a smaller university with a great location, this is for you. But the COST is quite high!"
