What are your general comments?

"I stayed with my sister's friend who lives in the dorms, which are pretty nice. Every building can only be accessed with your personal ID card, so security is big on this campus. So, I was a 5 min walk from where the interview was held, but I got lost b/c I didn't realize where exactly Hyde Atrium is. It's not all that clear on the map, but the only way to get into Hyde Atrium is through the Hyde Atrium doors. Don't try to go through the adjacent buildings thinking it'll connect! Anyway, so it went like this: presentation about school/financial aid, split up into two groups of essay writing and interviews for an hour each, tour, then lunch. There really wasn't that much walking, IMO, and I was in heels the entire time so I'm not sure what kind of tour the other people before got. I came out thinking I was a disaster in the interview, but I just got accepted today, so maybe not. :) Word of advice: don't let other people in your group make your answers look stupid compared to theirs. Come up with unique answers BEFORE the interview and you won't look so much like a robot." Report Response
