What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

What are your general comments?

"Because I interviewed at Beth Israel, I didn't feel like I got a very thorough experience with the school. I did enjoy being able to sit in on a firt year lecture for a little while, and I think the facilities are very nice. The people were approachable and friendly, the student housing is convenient. I do think I'd get frustrated being so close to the excitement of Manhattan but having it be so inconvenient to get there. A lot of students commented on it being a drag to have to go into the city sometimes. Oh, and my interviewer talked a lot about another school I interviewed at because he went there, and for a minute I felt like I was interviewing at that other school still, not AECOM!"
