How did you prepare for the interview?

"By this website & UB website" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"They seemed very easygoing & interested in you as a person" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The questions were so standard, although one interviewer did ask me to read newspaper clippings & give my opinion on ethical issues. I felt that gave me a chance to be more personable than the standard questions. I dont think anyone else had that type of experience during their interviews on the same day." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I really knew what to expect throughout the whole day thanks to this website. Everything you need to know is here. I wasnt nervous at all, even when I had to write the essay--some people didnt know they had to write a "surprise" essay. I guess my strategy worked, as I was accepted." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My second interview was by a 3rd year student & she was really nice. I got to ask lots of questions & she even gave me her email address. The interviews were really not bad at all, pretty relaxing actually. You also get to come back to a common room & watch TV & play pool & hang out with the other interviewees while you wait between interviews so you can get some feedback about their experiences as well. The tour is long, though--probably longer than necessary!" Report Response
