What impressed you positively?

What impressed you negatively?

"There was questionaire that consisted of 5 short essay questions and one long essay question. We had to write the essays while the faculty and students were giving presentations about the school which made it extremely difficult to focus on both writing the essays and paying attention to the presentations." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I feel like I was pretty well prepared, and I wash't caught off guard by anything." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"There are other comments that give a great outline of the events of the day so I won't go there. But I will say the interviewers made me a lot less stressed when they informed me they are advocating for me when the admission committee meets and they need me to let them know everything that will help them argue my case in the meeting. So just keep in mind that your interviewer is wanting to come up with reasons why they should accept you and not the other way around." Report Response
