What impressed you negatively?

"One of the admissions people complained about how the interview day was portrayed on SDN but didn't give a feedback survey so that the day could be made better. He even said that he was actively trying to find the people who had posted negative comments and hinted that it could affect their admissions chances. Seemed very unprofessional." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There is about 2-2 1/2 hours of sitting around time with fellow interviewees while everyone is interviewing. Depending on your group, conversation could get stale. My interview day went about 1 hour over the time they said. Also, they spent so much time pushing the Middletown campus, I didn't really get a feel for the Harlem campus, which was a shame."
