What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"I asked if there was anything else they wanted to know about me, she asked about my courses I'd taken in addition to the prerequisites, and said those courses will really prepare me for the course load. " Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"A lot of interesting conversation, not really any questions specifically. " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Thoroughly researched the school and everything about it on the website, looked at SDN feedback, reread my application, prepared a few answers from questions listed as asked at other schools. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I think it really varied depending on the interviewers, but mine were VERY laid back. It was a conversation, not an interview. I overheard others' conversations and think they were asked such things as 'what is your favorite book' and such. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Believe it or not, I would have actually liked to be asked a few more questions! From our conversations I'm sure they did learn a lot about me, it was just a different environment than I was expecting. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Make sure to have questions prepared to ask them, it was only fifteen minutes into my interview when they asked me if there was anything I wanted to ask about the school. VERY casual! When you check in, they give you the profiles of your two interviewers so you can read about their interests and area of expertise. A student came by and asked me who my interviewers and told me they'd be really laid back, so that was nice. " Report Response
