What impressed you negatively?

"The long wait periods between the interview and tour. The interview was also a little too short which didn't allow time really for more discussions. I didnt' feel like I got to know the faculty that much at all whereas other schools go out of their way to introduce you to them, tell you about them, etc." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interview went pretty well. There weren't any questions that stumped me. I thought all 3 members were very nice, open, and honest. The Ph.D. interviewer was smiling and nodding, which showed his interest which was nice to see. The student was also very nice and asked some good hard ethics questions - I always like challenging questions. The DO interviewer asked basic questions and took notes during the interview. Overall though, I was pretty comfortable but thought it went too fast." Report Response
