What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"I did not. It was not my first, so I just went in balls out. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"MMIs, Facilities, the fact that U of Mich does not tell students that Residency is required after graduation. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The fees! It is ridiculous for anyone to pay $62,000 (out of state) for a school like Michigan, which is probably not worth more than $40,000 (in-state). And, establishing residency is impossible, the financial advisor said so herself at the presentation. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Essay. But dont worry guys, although the prompt may seem to be a technical one, all they want to know is if you can write. So just bullshit the answer to the situation they present to you, provided that your bullshit is worded well. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Went in, got seated around a conference room table. The interviwees started spilling out to the surrounding chairs as the time approached 9:00 am. After this, was a couple of presentations, and then the 15 minute Essay. Then, a couple of more HOURS of presentations (It was getting ridiculous). Then, lunch, where the interviewers would just pull you away for 5 mins and interview you. Then the tour/MMIs (we were split in two groups, one went to MMIs, and the other went to the tour). After that, another speech by Dr. Woolfolk for closing and then you were free to go. Pretty stress free experience overall, just seemed really long with all the presentations. " Report Response
