At the school
"Lots about my personal statement and other stuff specific to my experiences.."
"What is your greatest strength?"
"Who is someone you look up to, or a hero? Don't choose anyone from your family."
"What is your greatest failure or weakness?"
"read their website, read this website."
"Everything. This place is amazing. Facilities, faculty, everything. The other interviewees were very impressive and friendly, I'd love to go to school with them."
"Baltimore isn't New York. It's not the greatest place to be. It's not a bad place to be, but it's not my first choice location either. "
"The students don't deserve their competitive rep. They are extremely hard working, but not trying to beat everyone else. This is definitely not a party school though. "
"The day starts with a very short orientation, followed by lunch with a faculty member (ours was this very sweet old man, he was great), then a tour. In the afternoon, you sit with all the other interviewees and fourth-years who are on the committee. Interviewers pop in and take students, the faculty interview is open file. After the faculty interview one of the fourth-years will interview you, that one is closed-file. The interview was made more stressful because after the tour and meeting students, I really wanted to go to Hopkins, so I was more concerned than normal about making a good impression."
