I'm really enjoyed learning more about the International Immersion program about half the first years do during their first summer." Report Response

"The day is extremely personalized, so there is very little interaction with other applicants interviewing the same day." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day is all about you. You don't move in a large group as I have in some other interviews. I had both interviews in the morning, then lunch with the tour guides and another applicant and then met with the dean to discuss what happened next. I stayed with a host and then shadowed them in one of their small groups, which was fantastic. There is a very tight community feel and everyone I met was very warm and welcoming. Many students came over to me and introduced themselves and asked me about myself. Overall, I was very impressed with both the students and the school." Report Response
