What impressed you negatively?

"...The organization of the entire interview day. Many students giving the tours did not know what was always going on, people presenting at different "pit-stops" of the tour didn't really know what was going on, and so forth. The dean's presentation was also a little less impressive than I was expecting it to be?" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That instead of elevators, my tour guide liked to use the stairs (I had heels on...ones that are normally last a long time without discomfort. Climbing up and down stairs, however, happens to destroy the lifespan of my feet). Also, I wish I had known I was supposed to go without food for so long..." Report Response

"This was my first interview. I honestly had no idea interviews even came with tours of the school. I was entirely under-prepared and I did not sleep well the night before.
