"I thought Mr. Epps and Mr. Shattuck did a lot to make the process enjoyable and to enfuse us with confidence before we went into our interviews. Their office made us feel how pleased they were to have the opportunity to interview us them. What a pleasant experience. To change the kind of name tags next time is the only suggestion I can even think of. It was a great experience. I encourage the students think of applying at Notre Dame to do it. This is a warm friendly environment. The team interviewing process was very comfortable. The whole process left me with a very favorable feeling about this school." Report Response
