What impressed you positively?

"Facilities are incredible. Brand new building with the latest technology. All students were very happy to be there. My tour guide had several positive stories about her favorite professors. Sounds like an amazing program. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interview was held on a Saturday, so it was difficult to get a feeling for a typical school day. The building and campus were so quiet. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"A lot of schools do not require that your file is complete for the day of the interview (i.e. all letters of rec do not need to be received). Colorado, however, definitely does. Make sure you have everything in plenty early. This is especially critical if your professors are submitting paper letters of rec to ADSAAS because it takes ADSAAS about a month to process them before they send them out to the schools. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Prior to my interview, I read several posts on SDN that described the Colorado interview as very intimidating and stressful. I would ignore all such negative comments. The interview was only slightly more difficult than those at other schools. If you are genuine, know your application extremely well, and come across as friendly and educated, there really is nothing to worry about. " Report Response
