How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, mock interview, and took my mom, boyfriend, and uncle with me to Henderson (NOT TO THE INTERVIEW THOUGH). They helped me relax. If I were to go by myself, I would be in my head too much and thinking of way I could mess things up. But I had fun with my family the night before and the day of my interview, so I was relaxed and EXTREMELY excited to be there. Don't get me wrong, I was still stressed out and nervous, but that was only my body. My mind-set was different. I was happy that I even got the interview, and I LOVE the school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Well, I called the school about a many times before getting an interview, just to clarify curriculum, application process, etc. I also vistited the USN Henderson campus to take a tour and talked to Ms. Laurie Briggs (also before getting an interview). Ms. Briggs is GREAT btw. So nothing really suprised me" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It may be easier said than done, but BE YOURSELF. If you really like USN and want to be there, let that show in your attitude. Sure you may be nervous, but being mild may seem like you don't really care to be there (unless you're a mild person to begin with, then by all means BE YOURSELF). When I got there, people asked about my stats...let me tell you, it's too late for it it to matter about your stats when you're AT the interview. It's on a point system, so whatever your stats are, you can't change that. The only thing you have control over at this point is how 'true' to yourself you are and how excited you are to be at USN. Do not worry about your competition. The point is not to be better than anyone else, the point is to do the best that you can do so that when you look back, you will have no regrets. To be honest, if I could do it again, I wouldn't change a thing (well, maybe to let them know that I LOVE to cook as a hobby...I feel that cooking is the only thing I do outside of schoolwork and academia that it may have been improtant to point out that I do have a life outside of school. Nonetheless, a minor detail). Sure I couldn have been more calm, but then I would have felt that I was portraying a 'fake' verson of myself. I was very active and could BARELY contain my excitment, even when being grilled by the interviewers (JK, all three were very nice, especially the professor--I will omit his name). Hopefully, USN felt that I would be an excellent canditate for their program. Good luck, to all of you who want to go to USN, I hope it will be a good 'fit' for you, because that's what they will be looking for. Will you fit in? Will you contribute? Will you be able to work in teams despite differences? Can you be a leader without being a dictator? Do you have compassion that is not taught in the textbooks? And if so, where did you get that compassion? Do you have good study ethics? Can you be competent? How will you handle moral delimmas? If I was USN, that's what I would want to know...."
