"Are you kidding me? Well, come to think of it, the tour after the interview was kinda lengthy and boring, and I was not able to sleep properly the night before, so I was hating every minute of it.

What are your general comments?

"My interview went very well. I had Dr. Terry. He's gotten older and he looked considerably weak and ill. He didn't ask any difficult questions, so there was some relief. The other two interviewers were pretty laid back as well. Fern is always a trip (in a nice way). Lynn Cawley is awesome and your BEST friend at Nova. Make sure you email her, call her and keep in touch with her if you wanna go here. I was told that Feb. 14th is the last day of interviews at Nova and that they won't interview after that for a couple of weeks. From what Dr. Terry said, there are 20 more seats left, so there's whole lotta competition. The students here are cool, friendly, and very laid back, so is the faculty. Traditional philosophy is practiced/taught combined with the problem solving philosophy which is a good combination. The overall experience was very helpful in making my decision to come here. Go Nova!" Report Response
