What are your general comments?

"Upon arrival, there are some videos to watch and paperwork to fill out while you wait for your interview day to start. There are two faculty interviews, generally one before lunch and one after. They're about 45-60 minutes, and relatively low-stress as long as you take your time to think about what you want to say. The tour is led by a student...and is unique in being a one-on-one tour. This gives you the opportunity to ask all the questions you want without sharing time with other applicants or being embarassed to ask things in front of other applicants. You have lunch with your tourguide as well, offering even more question time. I found it very easy to chat with my tourguide. Everyone from start to finish was extremely nice and welcoming, and the coffee was quite tasty. I was ill on my interview day, and everyone I came in contact with did everything they could to make my day as pleasant as possible." Report Response
