What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There's a good cop/bad cop theme of the interview. It's doesn't mess with you that much, but the ''bad cop'' can make you a little tense. Also, be careful, they are indeed listening to you and will follow up on your answers with several other questions, so make sure your answers aren't canned." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had a quick info session with an admissions officer, then my interview, then a financial aid info session, then a tour, then lunch. Other people had slightly varied schedules, but it was awesome to get my interview out of the way early. There were about 20 other people interviewing on the day I went. Unfortunately, the ease of your interview must be the luck of the draw because the other set of interviewers apparently did not ask any ethical or theoretical questions what so ever, where as mine did... a lot!"
