What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There were 15 of us interviewing and we all sat in a big conference room while we wait for everything to begin. When the dean came to introduced himself, he also asked all of us to introduce ourself and say why we were there. I wasn't prepare to tell EVERYONE why I was there. I was expecting only one-on-one. But it wasn't a big deal. Very casual. And also, beware of Atlanta's traffics! It is highly unpreditable." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, it was a good one. There were 15 of us and we all got to talk while we wait in a conference room. The first part was the dean and staffs telling us about Mercer's programs, scholarships, ect. Then: 1) Introduce ourselves. 2) In group of 3 we were assigned to a 2nd year student for the campus tour. 3) One-one-one interview with a second year student. (15 minutes or less) 4) 15 minute writing prompt. 5) Wait, chat with everyone until your faculty interviewer calls you up. This is about 30 minutes long. Everything went very fast. I was glad of the tour and the chatting in between b/c it helps you to relax a bit. Everyone is very nice and you can see that the students really like being at Mercer. My interview was at 9AM, by 12:30 we were done." Report Response
