What was the most difficult question?

"Do you have a credit card? Does your university allow credit companies to solicit students? Suppose a university sold a student's address and information, the student got a credit card, gets in extreme debt, and killed themselve leaving a suicide note indicating it was the schools fault. Who is to blame? This is a moral question; and assume the school violated no laws." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SD network, school's webpage, reviewed my application, read a book to relax." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Despite claims of poor organization the interview day ran smoothly; first year students that hosted us were happy and note succumbed by overwhelming study -- they can still have a life at this university and are competitive with other schools." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The indifferent response from my interviewers with the above most difficult question." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Do not stress yourself out. Most the stress is self-created and the actuall interviews are not nightmares but good memorable life events (even if tough questions are asked)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day was good, despite a few tough questions and a headache. Most the stress is self-imposed. I met alot of people and recognized many. The school (faculty and students) that turned out to see us were friendly and outgoing to help us in anyway. No one ever routed against us. Sadly, though, everyone was told at the begining of the day most of us would be DEFEERED; the reason: most of the class had been choosen but many more people had yet to be interviewed, so in effect this translates into, 'we like you but we need to look at everyone else first.' That was the biggest downer. Overall I felt good with the interview and the school seemed impressively with it." Report Response
