What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"How would you deal with a situation in which you feel you aren't learning what needs to be learned from a professor...it was something along those lines at least." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"There were a lot of situational questions. One that stands out was something like this: you just took a test. A group of students that also took the test are talking about the questions that were on it. Another student you know will be taking the same test is standing there listening to the discussion. What would you do about this?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Probably the one I just mentioned. Just be honest with the interviewer...they will read through bs answers. Another difficult question was the classic opener "Tell me about yourself". I should have rehearsed this one more because I kind of skipped around. Be prepared for it...it's simple but can get you into trouble." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Reading through the SDN interview feedback, looking at general interview tips on the web." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The faculty members I came across seemed very student oriented." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The tour was rushed and fairly worthless. I think the guide worked in admissions but she could have been a student. Either way she was terrible and I felt like the tour was about as worthless as it could have been." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Just how huge the U of M campus in the Twin Cities is...2nd largest college campus in the nation! I knew it was big but not this big." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was scheduled to go 40 minutes but my interviewer was very interested in me and by the time I was done asking questions the interview went just over an hour! I hope this is good news. Don't hold back any questions, even if you are trying to uncover anything that might be negative about the school. It shows you really care about where you are applying and that you aren't just trying to get accepted anywhere (even if you really are!:)" Report Response
