"The overall vibe of the interview. It was not at all what I expected. The ones who did my interview didn't seem intimidated at all.

What are your general comments?

"My experience was great. I can't complain about anything. I liked the fact that it was the same day as Open House, it somehow made it feel not so businesslike and it also allowed me to feel more relaxed somehow. Also I liked the fact that it was on Open House because I believe it was a way to test your ability to channel your stress by being in a sort of busy or chaotic environment before, during and after the interview."

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"I really have no suggestions. The Admissions committee and the way they work out everything is great. They are super attentive with the students regarding any questions they have, everything is aswered as soon as they can do it and they do it the nicest way. I love the fact that your account status online is pretty much updated every few days so you know if your checklist is complete or not (as opposed to some other universities, where nothing is updated and you have to call). I personally think that both the Welcoming Reception and the Interviews were carried in a very organized manner, the fact that some interviews got pushed a little later was not the admissions fault, the weather complicated things and there is no way admissions could help that. Overall, I would say that the admissions process for LSU has been the easiest one to work with, at least from the universities I applied to." Report Response
