What impressed you positively?

"EVERYTHING!! The school itself is amazing. The facilities and technology were definitely the best I had seen (this was my fourth interview). Faculty all seemed very friendly and professional. Liked that they take the boards after year 1. Students all seemed very close and enthusiastic about the school. Annnd I really like the Baltimore area. I know a lot of people on here bash it for being sketchy but the area where the school is is really nice and safe and the inner harbor area is beautiful. The stadiums are nearby and there is all sorts of cultural activities. Sure there are some bad parts, but that goes with any city. Plus since its a smaller city, you get that urban feel without being overwhelmed by a huge city. The suburbs are only like 15 mins outside of the city so there are lots of places to go."

What are your general comments?

"I thought my interview was AWFUL! First, I was the last one in my group to interview and I was started late and then I was ended early so my actual interview time was about half of what everyone else got. Second, my interviewer did not seem very interested in what I was saying and at one point told me that my answers to one of his questions seemed contradictory. I felt like I tried to lighten the mood a few times but it was still pretty stiff. Leaving the interview I was not confident at all and I was almost positive I would get rejected. Despite all of this, I loooved the school and it was definitely my top choice so I was even more disappointed in myself. But to my surprise, I got accepted on Dec 1. So interviews don't mean everything and you never know what they want!! " Report Response
