Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"There's actually life in Missouri! There's an awesome shopping area called the Plaza which was very interesting! There is a lot of land, open space, and the air was a lot cleaner than California. haha The people were also a lot friendlier than Californians. Everyone I met was very helpful, including the students. Besides from studying full time, they have fun, play sports and try to balance out their lives as best as they can. Some even have part time jobs their first 2 year." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"My first interview with the professional seemed kind of short, only about 30 minutes. He was very enthusiastic, but he talked more than asked me questions! The second interview with a MS6 was long - like more than an hour! He, however, didn't seem as enthusiastic as I expected, but he was really helpful in answering all my questions. It was really frigid, but it didn't snow as I expected. :( (we don't get snow in Orange County)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Be sure to bring a pencil and a calculator to the Toledo Chem Test. They would provide it for you, but it's always to use one that you are familiar with. Pack some warm clothes and a suit! Remember, dress to impress. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My mom and I got there the day before. We checked out the campus and talked to the security guards and he gave us our parking permits for the next day. Be sure to bring ID of some sort with you. I waited there in the lobby and was joined by about 5 other seniors with their parents. We took the Chem test after hearing a brief video about the docent system. Then a one hour break for lunch on our own. Afterwards, we were led by a MS6 for a school tour. We were supposed to go in for a Q&A session with some students, but we didn't have time for it because while we were touring the school, we talked and asked questions to some students that were already in their offices. We came back for our two interviews and that was basically it! Stressful, but well worth it." Report Response
