What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I didn't believe people on SDN when they said to bring a book or GameBoy or something to do...I didn't think that would be appropriate for an interview, but it totally was. They were really lax about what you did. I went and played foosball instead! :)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"They provide a continental breakfast, and $8 (more than enough!) for lunch, so you won't go hungry. The interview itself was a little stressful because it was 3 on 1 (two professors and a student). And they write, so it kind of makes you wonder what it is they want to remember. There was a very long awkward silence after I finished answering every question, and I thought it might just kill me... But I got in, so I guess it went well. Also, I felt that one of my interviewers REALLY didn't like me because he sat there with his arms folded the whole time, but one of the students told me later that he's actually really funny. So I guess I would say, don't judge a book by its cover. They give you a list of all of the interviewers and a mini-biography to read, so I would look that over and ask them questions about what they do at the end of the interview." Report Response
