"Because all interviews are virtual due to COVID, there was no leeway in the length of the interview. The email we received said 30-45 minutes, but they closed our Zoom room exactly 30 minutes in. Both I and the two interviewers had more to discuss and were cut short." Report Response

"Everyone involved in the presentation day and formal interview was extremely friendly and made it a comfortable experience.

The only downside was not seeing the campus." Report Response
