What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"Why don't you want to be a teacher? You can help people in that profession as well, but it wouldn't take such a demanding toll on your life." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Nothing Interesting - Just a note: Filo is a really nice guy. He has a sort of fake administrative eloquence, but his interviews are pretty challenging. Be prepared to really hash out some broad social issues. " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Lots of lists - List 3 social trends that are leading this country in the wrong direction - and many other list questions." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read this site, Read over my application" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The students at A&M are great. Also, their philosophy seems to be admirable, and they apparently live up to it. Scott and White is actually a cool place, and would be a good place for years 3 and 4 despite a generally negative attitude towards Temple among fellow interviewees and others I have spoken to." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I somewhat didn't care for College Station. The worst thing about the day is how early it starts. Most of us were there by 6:30 am. My first interview was at 8:00 am, and I don't think I was fully awake yet. It's a long day." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That there would be a lot of open-ended "list" questions. Those really force you to think on your feet and be eloquent, which is sometimes difficult at 8:00 am." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"A good school. Their biggest asset is their class size, which will be around 80 next year. The campus and facilities for the first two years are not exactly inspiring like some others, but Scott and White seems to be a good place for years 3 and 4. The students were very kind and helpful on the tours. This is a middle-of-the-pack school, but they put on a good interview day." Report Response
