What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing. I thought the day was well run and I was impressed by the school. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had known that the interview wasn't going to be all that stressful. My interviewer was extremely nice and informative. It was more of a conversation than a strict interview. One other thing I wish I knew: that I would have to sit and wait for 30 minutes in the lobby before the writing assessment began. During this time, the student ambassadors were there to answer any questions and alleviate nerves. But, that 30 minutes lasted forever! They probably want to make sure everyone shows up on time." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had a good experience. I was impressed by the students and my interviewer (a faculty member). I had heard that the facilites and building were "old".... which they might be. I thought the facilities and buildings were nice! There seem to be newer portions of the building. We waited for about 30 minutes in the lobby before the writing assessment started. The writing assessment was not too hard. The questions were a little more difficult than I anticipated. (they give you two and you pick one to write on). But, as long as you can compose a clear essay and argument/show that you can organize your thoughts it's really not bad. AFter that was the interview, followed by a q&a session with current students and a tour. " Report Response
