What impressed you negatively?

"One of my interviewers was a little too focused on my husband! Right out the gate he asked about him, and his ties to Lousiana, and how moving to LA would affect him. Then he came out and said that I needed to find a school with a lot of diversity, because I would not be happy otherwise because I wouldn't fit in. That kind of threw me off so when I asked about the diversity at LSU NO, he said that I would fit in at LSU NO, but other schools I wouldn't. In his words - you could try to fool yourself and tell yourself that you will be happy, but you won't be happy there because you wouldn't fit it.- That kind of turned me off to the school. Afterwards he said he looked forward to seeing me, and meeting my husband- again, a little too focused on my husband and not enough on me! The other interviewers rocked, and totally were trying to recruit me, but that one really made me think about if I wanted to come to school here. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

What are your general comments?

"Overall it was pretty good-with the exception of my rouge interviewer. Everyone was very friendly, the interview group was small- only 5 people including myself. There was a lot of walking and we actually got stuck in an elevator before our interview while we were going on the tour. The students liked it, but they didn't really sell me on how great this school is as much as how other schools did. Overall I am not sure if I would want to go there" Report Response
