What are your general comments?

"The whole process lasted 3 hours. 1. Walked in the administrative building and was handed a name tag. 2. Had a group presentation by the Dean of Adminsions for about 50 minutes. 3. Divided into groups of 3 and went a tour of the campus with a first year student. During this time you could ask questions. 4. Had to write a sample essay. There were two questions to pick from. The first was "You have caught someone cheating in your Organic Chem class, what do you do?" and the other was "Define Professionalism in your terms and tell hos it effects your daily life". You had 15 minutes to do it in. 5. Had a small, personal interview with a third year student. I really enjoyed this because you could ask a lot of questions and get a true feel of the school. 6. Went back in the room where the presentation was at and informally talked with the Dean of Adminsions, his assistant, and fellow applicants. This was very laid back and mostly just conversational. 7. Had a 30 minuted personal interview with a falcuty member. My interviewer was very nice and made you feel very comfortable. The interviewer knows nothing about you (closed-file), so this is your time to shine. All in all, it was a great experience and nothing to be frightened of. Just walk in with a postive I-can-do-it attitude and you'll do great!" Report Response
