"The interviewers were very positive and were encouraging everyone pretty much making the point that if they did not think you could get into the school, they would not have interviewed you." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing really negatively impressed me. Although, due to the hurricane, we were not on the school site and did not meet any students." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I was well prepared for the interview receiving many of the same questions I had studied. Make sure to have questions to ask them at the end of the 3 on 1." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Basically, know that the interview is not very stressful, so go in there confident and have fun with it. You will have a chalk carving to start, 1 on 1 interview, and then a 3 on 1 interview to finish. The 1 on 1 is a series of questions which serves almost more as a conversation starter and you converse for about 40 minutes. The 3 on 1 is with the Dean of admissions and two other respected faculty. They will each ask about 1 question to you and only lasts 15 minutes. It was an easy day and was enjoyable to be there."
