"Not much. I didn't have too many expectations about the school going in, but I came out of the interview very impressed with the school." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviews were very relaxed. There is one interview with a student interviewer and then a faculty interviewer. Most of the interviewees seemed to agree that the interviewers were very relaxed. We meet Dean Peterson in the morning, and she starts off the day asking people to introduce themselves and add a comment about themselves that doesn't pertain to their AMCAS application. It definitely eased up the tension in the room and made people feel more comfortable. The day isn't too long, the campus is beautiful. There was a large group there though, maybe 20-30 people who were interviewing all on the same day." Report Response
