After the tour you have lunch with current students. Use this time to ask questions and really listen to what the students have to say. Then you are assigned an interview time according to distance from Laramie. The interviewers try to create an environment that is low stress, there really isn't any need to be nervous. Be ready for some ethical questions that you may not have thought about a lot. Make sure you ask educated questions when they are done asking you questions. " More from this Member | Report Response

"A group of about 16 of us were in a room and we were brought to a conference room in which we Maria told us a bit about the school, and its history. The dean welcomed us and encrouged us to apply next year in case we did not get in this year, funny I remember that. Then we took a tour of the building. Came back took a math test full of story problems, no calculus involved like I had expected, went on a campus tour, then came back to the conference room and had pizzs with the students and had our questions answered. Then we were given our interview times according to how far away from Wyoming we were. Closer people interviewed later. After that we were free to do what we wanted until our interview time. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The day started out with a welcome from the dean followed by a skills test in math and writing. The skills test was very basic algebra while the writing consisted of responding to a hypothetical situation.
