"No unexpected or interesting questions in comparison with any other interview..but, I did find it interesting that the tourguide mentioned backrooms that some use to attend lectures..instead of actually going through that room to the actual lecture. Where's group cohesion and participation in that? Also interesting that they seem to put effort in matching interviewers with students." Report Response

"SDN (thanks to all:), school site, reflecting on your experiences and motives for pursuing the field..." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"-The sense of community and dedication among students and staff toward each other -accessibility of staff -I think this school set the record for longest interview+presentation time, but their effort says a lot " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"-the school was quite embedded, er..integrated with the town. However, I think they are aware of this since they had people directing traffic. -There were many unpolished things throughout the day here and there. I also thought it was weird that there was an absence of staff/students to greet students as they arrived. It was kind of funny seeing people in business suits and briefcases lining up in a cramped lobby without confidently knowing why. But then again, you have to give them cred for running a five hour show:)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Eat something before you embark on the interview/presentation, which is important considering that the meet time is 7.45 in the a.m." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"They are really just trying to get a clear sense of what kind/how strong of a team player you are. I got the sense they were in search of students who are able to add to the cohesion of the class unit. I could sense the dynamic of my future peers through their faculty, which is a good thing."
