What impressed you positively?

"The medical center, the enthusiasm of staff, administration, faculty - pretty much everything. They seem to be putting a lot of effort and money into their students (2 new research buildings, new edu center, etc). They seem very progressive and I got the feeling that they are "up and coming"...This school surprisingly impressed me the most out of all of my interviews and visits." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The new student center won't be complete for 2 years :( Not a negative impression, but I was a little disappointed. The library isn't open 24 hours. The website doens't do the school justice." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wouldn't want to know this beforehand because being a little nervous helps me I think, but maybe that once you're granted an interview you're considered the same as an in-state applicant." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Please keep in mind it was very low stress through all of this; we all assembled in a conference room (~40 people) with snacks and drinks, and then had a presentation from the Dean of Admissions (Dr. Hill). Students were brought in to talk to the applicants as a group while people were pulled out of the room for their interviews - given by a panel of one faculty and one student. The interview took place in an office, was very conversational, and led by the faculty member. The student asked a couple of questions, but was mostly there taking notes. After the interview, we were placed back into the conference room, served a wonderful buffet lunch (seriously, best interview meal I've ever seen) and we were allowed to talk with the students and other applicants more. We then went on a tour of the facilities, reassembled, and we were given a talk regarding financial aid and closing comments by the Dean and staff members." Report Response
