What impressed you negatively?

"The office staff in admissions were VERY rude, unneccessarily so. The gym is laughable, they only have an antique set of dumbells as their freeweight set and the rest of the equipment was inadequate for a school of any size. The library is also quite small. The housing situation would provide a great deal of difficulty to any student who wasn't very well financed." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Train service from manhattan does not run in frequent intervalls, which coincidentally meant that I happened to arrive first. Apparently they go on a system of first to sign in, first to interview. I wound up leaving hours before the last person." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall positve experience. The interviewer did not ask me any direct questions with the exception of tell me about yourself. I suspect that this was an attempt to see how I dealt with uncertainty or stress. I also think that this particular tactic may have been used when the interviewer managed to go off on a tangent from something that I had mentioned in a fairly extreme fashion. Either he was a little peculiar, or he was trying to throw me and see how I handled myself. He did not challenge me or say anything confrontational. I would say that the interview was more of a conversation than a Q&A session." Report Response
