What impressed you positively?

"Since this was my first interview I did not have much comparison. I liked the clinics, staff, and students." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"After interviewing at other schools I have realized what IU could do to make the experience more pleasant. My interview experience at IU was very short-lived; kind of get-in-get-out type as opposed to an all day informative event. IU lacked a waiting room for interviewees to comfortably sit. As for the actual interview, I felt like they were trying to find negative things rather than positive. My interviews elsewhere were so much better. The tour was optional and the guide was like "so where do you wanna go?" " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That they would be asking PBL questions. I was informed prior to my interview that you should know what PBL is but they wouldn't ask you PBL application questions." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview experience was very short. You arrive and wait in the admissions room. The order of events are financial aid presentation, interview, and then optional tour. Quite simple. Interviews lasted about 30 minutes and were panel style with two faculty members and a student. My overall experience was not as positive as I hoped. I guess I was unfortunate to get some tough interviewers. Other schools were much laid back. " Report Response
