What are your general comments?

"Guests are allowed, so I brought my sister and mother. We mingled in the lobby on the ground floor until we started at 8:30. The dean, who is a humorous fellow, opened for us with a few encouraging words. Everyone was classified as either Group A, B or C. That made the difference on what activity you would be doing when. I had my interview with the instructor first, which was nice to get it out of the way. It was an open fil interview. She was very welcoming and warm and the questions did not feel like interview questions, just her personally inquiring things about me. This is where you need to be yourself. After around 20 minutes, she released me back to the student lounge where I waited for the campus tour. They showed us their simulation lab (soo cool, one of the 3 schools in the country to have one) where they can perform simulations along with the nursing and medical students about how to treat patients effectively. Then we went back to the student lounge to wait for our last interviewers to come and get us. The last interview was conducted by a student of the pharmacy school, who was very down to earth and acted like he really wanted to find out who you are and whether or not you would fit at the school. My student interview was closed file. After that interview, I found my family and waited until the financial aid section started, and then after that the schools student affairs person went over everything required for matriculation. They then served us Chick-fil-a. Overall, a good day. I felt very welcome at the event." Report Response
