"Everyone was exceptionally nice and made you feel welcome! The admissions staff was extremely friendly and the Dean was tremendously personable!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The number of students per group interview, it was almost like you would have to be disrespectful of others in order to make sure you weren't the last one in the group to speak. I just didn't feel like there was enough time to truely express yourself as a person in order for them to get to know you personally." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I felt the interviewers could have interacted a little more. They just sat there expressionless after they opened up the floor for everyone to answer their question! Also they could have made the group style interview more of a discussion than a cut throat, free for all. You don't really get to know someone in this manner! " Report Response
