What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The interview day is very self directed. They tell you when your interviews are and give you a list of other things they would like you to see and places they would like you to go. So, don't expect to be led around for the entire day...much of it is time to explore on your own." -Posted 11/23/2004 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a very informative and positive day. It wasn't nearly as long as the interviews were last year, so I wasn't as tired as I thought I would be. If possible, try to have your student tour guide take you to a lot of the places on the list of things Jane gives you to explore. It's less intimidating to find your way around that way." -Posted 11/23/2004 | Report Response
