What impressed you positively?

"Saw some students in elevator, passing and they all noted I must be interviewing from how I dressed/name tag. Liked the few glimpses of those who I saw and interacted with." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"no tour. I think that having done research on the school, I am aware of the excellence and the reputation that Maryland has. However, I wished I got more presentations and talking time with students and a tour of what it would be like to be an actual student." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"it was pretty straight forward of what would happen." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Here is what to expect: (1) a student interview, with 2 students and yourself. (2) A faculty interview. Not sure if it was open file because no specific questions were asked. (3) A group interview. Group interview consisted of three students and held with 6-8 other candidates. Ethical questions asked and we were asked to respond. The whole interview does indeed go for 4 hours. Then Essay where we were required to respond to reading, and then write our opinion. Afterwards, student panel held where we were free to ask questions. No surprises and just a mix of feelings afterwards since I do not have a ton of experience in group interviews. Tips: practice through friends and speaking, SDN, and eat a bit. day goes by quickly and you are given a schedule of where to go. hope this helps!" Report Response
