What are your general comments?

"Okay let me give you a timeline of what goes on. You show up to your interview and are instantly greeted by like 30 faculty/staff. Make sure you talk to as many as you can (but don't just say hi and walk away, get to know them). Then we either had interview or a group activity. The group activity was awesome! We were assigned some sort of problem(cannot say) and in 10 minutes we were supposed to find a solution. Make sure to communicate with everyone and make your voice/ideas heard. But don't be that person who just takes over and talks over people. The interview was super relaxed. I was interviewed by a P4 and a professor. They look at you 95% of the time you are talking and seem honestly interested in EVERYTHING you have to say. So of course answer questions, but also get to know them a little bit as well. They did a lot of talking in my interview, just explaining things to me. After that, we did a student question/answer session, and they students were nice and had a lot of nice things to say about the school. Lastly, you have lunch. During lunch you again try to meet and talk with as much faculty as you can. The whole point of this is because right after you leave, they ALL get into a group in a room together and discuss each and every person. Your interviewers will vouch for you and will do most of the talking when the topic is about your application. BUT other professors can chime in and say, "oh I've met that person and he/she seems to be a great fit for our program." So talk to everyone! And be intentional! They are all great people who genuinely want to get to know you! The food was amazing btw" Report Response
