Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Research the program, what makes that school unique, why it is your top choice. Do not go overboard. Just know the program very well. Prepare sample questions for yourself (you know the most important ones) and develop your general responses to them. Know your own history and academic records very well, and speak the truth. It is also VERY IMPORTANT to have some questions that YOU can ask the interviewer yourself once the interview is over, this leaves a good impression and shows confidence!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The sheer amount of PEOPLE that were there! It was very intimidating at first. The critical thinking exam was probably my least favorite part of the interview process as well. The essay portion was not bad at all." Report Response

"That it would be a group interview with one professor and one P2 student" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I know it is hard, especially if it is your first interview, but try your best to be RELAXED as possible.

DO NOT make up answers or lie, the interviewer will know right away and the interview will go badly." Report Response
