"Overall, I had a really good experience at MSU. It seems they have incorporated all the things that I have liked at each school I have visited. My faculty interviewer was awesome; he asked really great and interesting questions. In 35 minutes, I feel that I was able to really let him know who I am as compared to some hour-long interviews elsewhere where I felt I was spinning my wheels. Very low stress conversations with both the faculty and student interviewers. " Report Response
