What impressed you negatively?

"The only negative impresion I obtained was the 2nd interviewer that I met. However, this was my personal experience. For future students going to A&M, I think everything will be fine. What will really make the day excellent or average will depend on your interviews." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"From my experience, it seemed that the interviewers looked at the application either 5 minutes before the interview or saw it first hand as they spoke to you. For example, my inetrviewers had problems differentiating future course work from current course work. So as long as you guys have a good idea of your statement and what you have done, then you should feel prepared. If you want to prepare, look at ethical and social issues. Overall, try to relax as much as possible. In addition, once you finish the 1st interview, quickly move on to Temple so you will not be late to the luncheon." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I had a very good experience. The only negative portion of my interview was a mixed feeling of my second interview. Theimportant thing is for you to relax and be yourself. Good luck to all." Report Response
