What impressed you positively?

"They did a great job of selling their school and telling us about the great curriculum. I was definately impressed with their curriculum and their outreach program for the students. I liked Ann Arbor as well. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I did not like the way interviews were conducted. Speaking with someone for 15 minutes in a crowded room while eating lunch is not laid back but more stressful than the traditional interview. Also, my interviewer threw a barrage of questions at me in the 15 minutes and did not give me adequate time to answer. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That some of us would have laid back interviews while some of us would be interrogated, depending on which faculty member you were paired with. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was crowded (about 40 of us). I felt as if my interview was a lot harder than the other applicants because we all had different faculty members interviewing us (and I happened to get one of the more stringent ones.) Also, I did not like how they crammed so many questions into such a short little time. I really like the school's curriculum though, but an interview should not be crammed into 15 minutes like that b/c it's not fair to the applicant. I was asked close to 25 questions in 15 minutes.
