What impressed you negatively?

"I had an incredible day touring up until the interview. The bad cop/good cop kind of discouraged me and left me with a bad feeling afterwards. Still got accepted though :), so the anxiety was all for naught." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"GOOD COP/ BAD COP. If you're not particularly stunning at interviews (like me), prepare for this. Don't let the negative comments deter your answer to the questions. Keep your convictions and you should be good." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Was my #1 choice going in to the application process. The orientation and tour with students confirmed it for me. I'm going to stray from the cliche "relax and be yourself"... obviously be honest with your answers, and don't change them to fit what you think *they* would like to hear. Prepare for it. Make sure you are comfortable answering questions in the field and responding to adverse or negative comments. The main purpose is to see if you can remain calm, coherent, and concise with your answers under pressure. You're only one step away from getting in, good luck! :)" Report Response
