What impressed you positively?

"The people were a definite plus, I just felt comfortable there! The resources were amazing and the building was quite new so that was a big plus for me. I meshed research wise with the professors insanely well. I just can't say enough good things, it is the perfect program for me!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It wasn't a biggie but you have to interview with all the adult clinical faculty and most of the grad students so it is a LONG day. I am also not 100% sold on Morgantown, though it looks alright." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing, I knew the program inside and out before I went." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had about 14 interviews, half hour ones at first and then 15 minute ones in the afternoon. We also received a tour of the building including the clinic and research labs. The night after the interview there was a huge party for the department with free alcohol (which I personally didn't touch). I at first thought this was a test to see if someone would get drunk, but I don't feel that way now as much. It was just a good way to meet the rest of the department. It was an amazing experience; by far the best interview I went on and I went on several!" Report Response
