What impressed you positively?

"Dr. Haight, meeting and getting to know my fellow interviewees, the previously accepted student who came to meet us at the Best Western in the morning" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I really wish they didn't try to squeeze so many applicants into one interview day. When they have to interview five applicants within one hour, there's just not enough time for you to really let the interviewers know all the things you want to get across to them. Each interviewer asked each applicant two questions (as time ran out, some applicants were only asked one), and I didn't think that was sufficient to really let them learn who you are. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The Best Western is a nice place to stay at. I was pleasantly surprised to find a fridge, microwave, and coffeemaker inside the room. I enjoyed my day, and met some really cool people. I just wish TUCOM would have a maximum number of students who interview with the panel. I think anything more than four applicants with one panel is too many. I felt like I answered my questions fairly well, but when I walked out of the interview, I felt like there was so much more about me that the interviewers didn't get to hear because there wasn't enough time.
