How did you prepare for the interview?

"I printed out a list of about 40 questions and had a friend ask me them. The interviewers also have a list of about 30 questions and they all use the same list, so there is a good chance that you will get to answer some of the same ones between the two interviews (as I did) because some of the interviewers ask upwards of ten questions." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The presentation about the school was really nice and well put together." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interviews were very disorganized. There was about 45 students and half as many interviers, and many people had to sit and wait while others were interviewed. This would have been fine, but when some interviewers came out, the students that they were supposed to interview were with other interviewers and they were confused, further confusing students. Granted, this was their first year of interviews, but their 5th interview session. I expected more organization." Report Response
