What are your general comments?

"The day was probably the worst organized day that I have experienced at an interview. The tour sucked very badly because the admissions officer was not very enthusiastic. Its a small campus, and there is not much to see, but I felt that we could have seen more of certain areas, like the labs and the hospital, but we did not get to see it on the 3 minute tour of the campus. There is also a lot of dead time to kill. I had 2 hours to kill between my first interview and lunch. The interviews themselves are very laid back though, so don't worry at all about it...just relax and be yourself. The student interview during lunch was awkward and I really don't see how it was productive. Also, I don't think that I personally would fit in at the school. Kind of weird to say this about a school that has the most URM's in the nation, but I did not think the class is very diverse at all. If this ends up being the only school I get into, I would be happy and would do my best while there, but I would have wondered everyday how my life would be different if I was able to get into one of the many other schools I interviewed at. One more thing...ask very good and well thought out questions to your interviewers, not just the usual ones! (you know what I mean)" Report Response
