What impressed you negatively?

"We only had a faculty member speak to us for maybe a total of 5 minutes. It felt like they know that they are a top school, so they didn't take the steps to impress us and show that we should choose UT" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There is only one tour which is at the very end of all the interviews. So even if you interviewed at 1, you had to sit in the waiting room for 3 hours until all of the interviews were over. If you hate waiting, schedule a later interview. My interview ended at 3 and we didn't move on to the next part until 4:45." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interview overall felt like it went well. There were no surprise questions. Everything they asked was pretty much already posted in the database. All they have in front of them from your application is your personal statement, so be prepared for a couple of questions tailored specifically to it. At the end they asked me if there was anything that I wanted to add that hadn't been said that wasn't on my application or hadn't been addressed during the interview." Report Response
