What impressed you positively?

"The school is amazing, the support for students is awsome, hummanities inclusion, elective programs, facilities are top notch." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The structured portion of the interview was really ackward. It was hard to know how much information to give and how long to talk when they didn't converse during this part. The conversational part at the end was much better and I hope they will take this into account." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I would have prepared my answers a little better. I also didn't know I would be sitting in a small room with 11 other candidates for three hours. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day itself was not terribly stressful, but the interview was odd. The questions were really open-ended and vague, which makes it hard to "sell yourself" during the structured interview. The rest of the day was great, very nice staff, students there are really happy, Iowa City is a great town." Report Response
