"the size of the class (250), because since it's so big there are many opportunities to do activities/clubs outside of class. also, lots of community service opportunities that are not only encouraged but implied." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"the student interview is VERY short (mine was only about 10 minutes) and if you get an inexperienced interviewer like me (it was his first time), you may have to direct the interview all by yourself. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"overall pretty low-key. the day starts late, at 11 am and i thought it was sort of annoying that you have to listen to all the presentations and do the tour before the interviews without even a bathroom break. also, the food for the lunch sucks so either eat a big breakfast or look forward to a good early dinner afterwards."
