"nothing!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Your group interview REALLY depends on who's interviewing you. Our group had 2 very tough professors and it was VERY tense. From what previous interviewees told me, it would be a free response type of situation. Ours was not like that at all!! The professors came in a started pointing at people & calling names...even asking us to throw people under the bus and name our weakest members. Everyone in our group left staring at each other in disbelief! In the end, it was a great learning experience, but man was it rough!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Tech really impressed me with their campus, curriculum, and general hospitality. UT was always my #1 choice, but after interviewing with Tech, I very quickly decided that I wanted to spend my next four years as a Raider. After being accepted to UT last week, I promptly turned them down...something I never thought I'd do in a million years!" Report Response
