What impressed you negatively?

"The enormity of the building....going up and down all day in that building would probably get me fatiqued after a while but hey...I think it is well worth it...Oh tuition is off-da-hook ($75,000 per year) this is just the budget but damn...I guess one would hope to find someone who is a relative or friend to live for free or for 500 a month. Budget for cost of living is between 17K and 21K at approximately 1500 to 3000 dollars per month rent. Lot's of sacrifice. But don't let this be the deciding factor. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was wonderful...I read SDN before and it made me a bit scared to go for my interview, but I had a really good time with my interviewer...she made me feel really relaxed and she didn't ask any difficult questions. She actually told me that the questions she was asking were hard and that I was answering them very well. The interview started out with questions but after a while we were laughing and just having wonderful conversation. It is either I was fortunate to have a wonderful interviewer or I was just on point that day because things went very well." Report Response
