What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That my POI probably wasn't accepting students. I probably wouldn't have made the trip had I known." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall the interview was good. It was three interviews and then we were just in a waiting room, but it wasn't bad and we did have people pop in to talk with us or take us on tours or things of that nature. I wish I had known about my POI before coming, but what can you do? Also, if you get lost on campus, do not ask people where the Psych building is because no one knows! I found that out the hard way!" Report Response
