An example of when I had to convince ppl of something, or use persuasion,etc. Many other q's...just look sample q's on the internet...they were exactly the same!!" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"I don't think any question was interesting. The interviewers just had a paper with a list of questions to ask me...exactly like sample questions you can get on the internet to practice. Kinda boring..." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"The behavioral-type of questions were hard for me just because I have a hard time remembering ''a time when...'' or ''a situation when...''. You really have to be prepared for those...and they ask loads of questions like that..." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The faculty,etc seemed like they really cared about their students. Nice weather, nice city (although small). " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Felt the interview was *mechanical*. They didn't have a program for the day. You just had your interview and then a short tour of the facilities. There was not ''informational session'' or anything like that like other schools do... " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really..." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Before your interview you stay in a room with the other applicants and there are some first yr students so you can ask them questions,etc. The interview was long...an hour more or less. I felt it would never end. I had one faculty interviewer, one 4th yr student and another guy ( he was an alumni, but I don't know what else he was...). The interviewers were nice and friendly and didn't make me feel uncomfortable. However, the interview felt mechanical. They ask the same list of questions to every applicant and I think they grade you (A,B,C...) on every question. They just had a list of questions to ask me. One question right after the other...a LOT of questions. And b/c they had to ask so many q's I didn;t have time to really expand on my answers. One interviewer asked me about my experiences,etc, the other about ethical q's,etc...the third about behavioral q's. I didnt really like the way they interview applicants. I felt the other interviews I had at other schools that were more *natural*, with no *set* q's were better, and that they interviewers got to know me as a person better. Anyway, just my opinion..."
