"The school is building a new clinic and classroom building" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interview was set up to feel a bit intimidating- I was seated at the top of a huge "O" shaped table, with two faculty on each side, so that I had to turn in my chair to directly face each person. In addition, I spent a lot of time waiting around (almost 2 hours total) while the other applicants were interviewed. For a large portion of that waiting time, there were no student ambassadors or anyone to chat with, it just felt very awkward." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That there would be a lot of downtime during the day when we were just waiting, although the interview day itself was very drawn out. I arrived at 8:15 and didn't leave until almost 3:00." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The faculty and student ambassadors were all very kind, the resources of the school are great, but I did not like how the interview was set up to feel very intimidating with the layout." Report Response
