"Mare Island has huge potential to be an awesome place to go to school. Give it 3-5 years." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The island is all torn up at the moment, construction everywhere. The campus is very inaccessible. But like I said, give it a few years to develop." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing. I'll use this place to rant though. Someone a few posts below said one interview group was all UCSD/UCLA grads on purpose. That's completely false. One guy was foreign, one ucsd, one ucla, one uci. I do agree though based on what I heard, the 2nd group got some tough questions. Sounds like their interviewers were hard on them. It's luck of the draw, be prepared for anything!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The Marriott is comfy with free internet so you can study/prepare for your interview =) The shuttle ride is almost required in my opinion, because I couldn't find the freakin place on my own. The interviewees there were chill people and ironically 80% dudes. The faculty treated us well and diffused my nervousness. I didn't know what to expect of the group style interviews but it seemed to keep flowing and people building off others comments." Report Response
