What are your general comments?

"Got there around eight and spent thirty minutes in the entranceway introducing myself to other applicants. Then we spent an hour in orientation. During orientation, a faculty member talked about the school and then we were able to ask questions. Also we were asked to introduce ourselves to the group. Next we took a Critical Thinking test. This is a weird logic-based test that I can't even explain. You get forty-five minutes to answer thirty-four questions. Everyone finished pretty easily. Next we did a writing exercise. It was pretty standard. Here's a problem, how would you solve it. Then came lunch--forty-five minutes. After lunch, we did the actual interview. The interview was me, a faculty member and a first-year student sitting in a room talking. Most of the talking was off the cuff. The student asked more questions than the professor. The questions were SIMPLE. After the interview, we toured the building and then listened to a thirty-minute talk about the importance of buying a Dell computer. After that, we did a group exercise. For the group exercise, you get a problem, you have to decide as a group how you will solve the problem, then each member of the group--eight to each group--has to give a mini-presentation to two faculty members explaining why you decided what you did. Then the faculty questions you a little bit. This was the most stressful part of the day, but even this wasn't bad. After the group exercise, you spend another hour with the admissions staff. They give you a lot of helpful information about the city, the school, and the admissions process. Then your free to go. " Report Response
