What are your general comments?

"I arrived at the interivew at 8:00 am and I felt like I was late because everyone was there. We split into 2 groups and one group went to a school tour and another group started the interviews. The student was very helpful and gave us lots of hints about the interviewers and the questions to expect. Expect to have a lot of down time. After the tour, which only lasted 20 minutes, you have about 1-1&1/2 hour to wait either for the interview or for other people to interview. During that time you have to fill out a exit survey, which also serves as your writing sample. There are 3 groups of interviewers and each person gets 30 minutes, no more no less. After the interviews ended at 12 or so, the school hosted lunch followed by intro from the associate dean and a financial aid session. The day ended at 2:15 or so. It was realtively low stress, although I stress easy. Don't be afraid to stand out, they are looking for that. I would advise against wearing a black suit because some faculty said are we at a funeral? By the way, I was accepted and am going there in the fall of 2006." Report Response
