What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Look in your folder as soon as you get it to see what your writing sample question is (blue paper). Also second time interviewees, you have a one-on-one interview. Side note: if you're looking for a last minute hotel try the Millennium Biltmore. Cheap rates if you book within 72 hours of your arrival. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This is not an interview. I felt more like a starved wolf in a hungry pack scrounging for any remaining piece of meat on a two-week old carcass in the dead of an Alaskan winter. The problems with this "interview" are: 1) in the PBL group session you either interrupt people left and right or you come off as too passive...don't know which is worse and 2) you don't get to express yourself beyond a paper secondary application and a ten minute writing sample (unless you are a second-timer).
