What impressed you positively?

"The students are all very bright and interesting, really fun to be around. There seem to be a lot of resources available for students, specifically, money, for students interested in pursuing research, community, or student life activities. Students come from schools all over the country. It seems like students are picked on numbers and personality with less emphasis on undergraduate institution." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The interviews are extremely relaxed. Seriously- my interviewer and I talked about how great dogs are for 15-20 minutes." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"We were told at orientation that we (applicants) obviously have great credentials (or we wouldn't be interviewing), so the interview is really to assess how our personalities "fit" the school. I suppose this is pretty normal for interviews, but they aren't kidding around about that. However, the lack of intensity and difficult questions makes judging my performance difficult- I keep wondering did I get my key points across?" Report Response
