What was the most difficult question?

"Who would I sit beside on the way home? -- I already knew they would ask this question from reading past posts. But from my response, the interviewer could tell that I already heard this question before. I don't think it was a bad thing, just showed that I had prepped for the interviewer." Report Response | I was asked this question too

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, Mock Interviews (Extremely Important). Its not until you practice the real thing that you realize the little silly things you do when your under pressure." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The school was amazing! All digital, really nice sim lab, faculty were very nice and really good at making you feel comfortable. Lippman's the man!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Same as other posts. Since D1's give the tour, its a little disorganized. They weren't sure about the timing and as a result we had to rush through our tour." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I felt pretty prepared so not much. I knew th campus was beautiful, but I didn't get the real impression until I was actually there." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was very short. Maybe 15-20 mins. And like other feedbacks have said, it is very conversational. Although this helped me feel very comfortable, I didn't really have a chance to say what I wanted to say because like any conversation, its two sided. So, when I mentioned a point, the interviewer would interject and add something completely unrelated which forced me to adapt and continue on with their conversation. Our conversation ended up way off track, ultimately discussing if professional athletes deserve their high salaries. My only advice for this interview (which I know is not helpful when preparing for one) is BE YOUR SELF! You really can't fake it in this interview because the style is so laid back and natural."
