What impressed you positively?

"Everyone was very nice, and they were very up-front about their process, and what we should expect. I was really impressed that they have programs set up to allow their students to explore a really wide range of practice and research settings, without making a permanent commitment to one type of career or another." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Where to park. I parked in the Triangle Garage, because that was the only place I knew that had a covered entryway in case of rain. I think we were supposed to park somewhere else, though." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was told that it would be a blinded interview for two of the panel members, so I really was not expecting any questions about my academic record. I completely lost my composure, which is a shame, because none of the ethical questions rattled me at all, and I think at this point, my ability to handle THOSE questions is far more important. It would have been a really pleasant experience, but for that." Report Response
