What impressed you positively?

"The willingness of the students to offer answers to any questions and to give tours, pick up from the airport..." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It took me an entire 45 minutes until one of my interviewers would finally uncross his arms and act interested. Don't be alarmed if one of your interviewers is "the mean guy", one is "the nice guy", and the other is just there to be there. I think that my "mean guy" just wanted to see how I could handle the pressure and stress. Don't let it bother you...I think that he is there to test your skills :)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really, taking taxi's around town is annoying. So, if you're old enough, I would rent a car rather than ride around w/cabbies all day." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"When walking into the room before the interview, there will be a group of 4 students, also waiting to interview. Each student goes into a different room to be interviewed by a different committee. The interview was not too relaxed for me. Apart from the one interviewer who just sat there, uninterested, everyone else was nice. By the end though, I think I got through to "the meanie" because he finally relaxed and started talking a bit more. The interview is supposed to run ~ 30-40 minutes, mine ran over an hour. Basic questions were asked, real similar to all the other interviews I have been to so far. Nothing to worry about, just be prepared w/your answers. " Report Response
