What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"It was not a problem for me but I've seen complaints about not getting lunch during the day because you are there all day. Everyone has at least an hour break sometime during the day. If you want to leave and get lunch just ask the admissions staff and they will tell you where to go. There is a shopping center that is a 5 minute drive from the school with restaurants and fast food." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"If you talk to the interviewers like they are your colleagues as opposed to acting like the interview is a test, it should go great. They are trying to see if they want to spend the next 4 years with you not if you can get all the answers right. You can have a perfect answer to everything they say and still not get in. Be someone that they would like to spend more time with. " Report Response
