"The resume that you attach to your application is given to the interviewers. If I had know this I would have a sent a concise, 1-page resume. Also, I would not have spent as much time reiterating what they already knew. Be aware that there is an extemporaneous essay component. Bring a pencil and eraser, because only pens and golf pencils are offered. I would have been able to better answer the essay if I brought a pencil." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The school is very nice, the neighborhood is beautiful, and student affairs is really working to create a better campus environment for its non-commuter students. This school is a WICHE PSEP participating school. From what I could tell the interview questions give completely vary from group to group. Some groups got situational questions like "if X happened what would you do?" while others got the types that are reflected on this forum. Set up= 2 faculty, 1 PS3 student 45 min interview, 10 min for questions at the end 100 word extemporaneous essay involved (bring a pencil and eraser!)" Report Response
