How did you prepare for the interview?

"I read over all the questions posted on SDN, did a mock interview with my advisor, reread my personal statement the night before, and read the school's brochure so I'd have a good handle on the school's strengths and weaknesses." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The interview was very casual and conversational. The interviewers were very positive and seemed genuinely interested in my qualifications and accomplishments. They took extra time after the interview to answer my questions, and told me that the questions wouldn't be part of the interview, a nice touch that I appreciated." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"My interviewers were somewhat casually dressed, which was both relaxing and off-putting at the same time." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I would have know that the interviewers were going to pull out some regular interview questions right in the middle of behavioral ones so I could have been on my guard." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This was probably one of the most pleasant interviews I've ever had. Also, they are very accommodating if you get a question that you genuinely dont have an answer to. I had one or two questions that were just impossible for me to answer (I don't really remember them, but they were just out of my field and not relevant to me at all), and I told the interviewer this and she gave me an alternate question. I got in, so it would appear that this doesn't count against you too badly." Report Response
