What are your general comments?

"You get to meet Anthony, the information desk person, who is absolutely hilarious! You would think he is part of the mafia or something by the way he acts and talks but he was a real comic relief. Then you get brought up to the welcome room, where an admission staff will take you in one at a time to review your file. Afterwards, you are asked to write a 10 minute essay. Then you meet a financial person. Afterwards, you meet with a faculty member for your interview. Once that is over, you get a tour of the institution and a luncheon with some fellow students.
