What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Be prepared for a fairly rigorous interview. The interviewers, although nice, were very serious. The questions were straitforward, but be prepared to explain exactly why you applied to Uconn." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Be ready for an exceedingly long lecture on the "extremely demanding curriculum" at UConn. Also be prepared to hear all about the performance of their students on the national boards. These are Uconn's two top selling points, which they will make sure you know by the time you leave. However, the overall interview experience was enjoyable. The students were generally friendly (albeit a bit competitive), and the dean, Dr. Thibodeau, gave a thorough explanation of the program." Report Response
