So many things there), how the admissions people walk past students and say hello to them by name, my interviewers, the curriculum (the one I like integrates classroom learning with small group discussion and some PBL), how psychology is integrated into the curriculum, wow, so many things."

"I came out of this interviewer with this school as one of my top choices. It's a fantastic little school with a great community feel." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My first interview was with a member of the administration - it was very conversational. Nothing to stress about. The second was with the director of admissions and we spent most of the time talking about my undergrad college. The third interviewer - loved him. Absolutely loved him. The interview was like 45 minutes long because we were just talking about our research (his project is fascinating). I just wish I could keep talking to him and he could be my life coach or something. My fourth interview was with the DO/PhD coordinator. She was really nice too. If you get in, they let you know right away. In fact, the admissions committee and all the interviewers meet right after we leave. They emailed me at 5:15 to tell me I got in (I left campus about 4:45). If this school were in an urban area, I'd go in a heartbeat. It's still a top choice, though, and it will be a hard decision."
