What impressed you positively?

"They were very friendly! I never felt uncomfortable, students and faculty cared about getting to know you as an applicant. The students seemed very happy with their choice, and willing to share about their experiences." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"During the lunch with students we were encouraged to ask questions, but were evaluated. There were 5 students, and about 12 of us interviewing. We were eating lunch, and asking questions, but they were writing things down about us at the same time. I prefer a situation where students are there to answer your questions, not to impact your admission." Report Response

"Bring a snack! I did not locate the vending machine for a while, and there was no food places around, nothing until lunch (which so-so)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The experience was very relaxed. My first interviewer asked me only two questions, we basically just talked for 40 minutes. My second interview was the polar opposite. He asked me a lot of questions, and with great detail." Report Response
