What are your general comments?

"Be prepared for a LONG interview process. Right as you walk in, you'll head to an office that has your name tag and a folder with some scratch paper, a schedule, and other information concerning about housing, computer specs, and an apartment listing. You'll be herded into a room for an orientation about the school. After that, you'll take a California Logic Test which seems absolutely pointless. After that, you'll be writing an essay concerning a situation on health care. Both of these by the way, you will not get the results. Mine concerned about forming a committee on distributing liver for liver transplant patients. It asked who should be on the committee, why and the process on forming the criteria on deciding who gets the liver. Then, you have a lunch break for about an hour, then you will follow the schedule on your paper that came with the folder. After you get a tour of the school, a computer seminar (you must have a labtop before entering this school), and the interview, you will break into groups to do a group dilemna problem. Later, two faculty members will walk in and the group (which consists of eight people) will describe the problem, discuss a solution to the problem and why and give two other solutions and why you did not choose those. They later ask you questions. After that, you'll have a Q&A session. Overall, it is a long process that should have been shorter. Be aware that they only take 88 each year and approximately 50-60 chosen are from the early admission process. In fall 2007, they wiil be opening up another campus that will take in an additional 40." Report Response
