What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I feel like I was well prepared and there were no surprises. Like someone already mentioned they give you 45 minutes to write an essay and a very limited space to write it in. So I wrote my essay in 25-30 min on draft paper that they provided and then took the rest of the time to copy everything neatly and made sure it fit in a box they assigned for the essay." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Even though I spent 5 hours there, the time passed by really fast. I was also worried that the interview was super long, since my other interviews were about 20 min. But they asked me tons of questions and it was a very fast-paced interview. I was out of there and I couldn't believe 45 minutes passed. I also prepared many questions for my interviewers as there was a lot of time to ask those. I tried to engage my interviewers in a conversation when I asked them questions. In the end, I was kind of worried that I didn't impress my interviewers much and was stressing out for 6 weeks before I finally got my acceptance letter." Report Response
