"I had afternoon interviews, so the morning was filled with talks about what to expect, how they accept students, financial aid discussion, lunch, and waiting! My first interview was open-file, one-on-one. The second interview was closed-file, two-on-one. Each interview lasted 30 minutes. I was asked many, many questions! The other students who were also interviewing that day were really friendly. You spend a lot of time waiting, so be prepared to sit around a bit." Report Response
