What are your general comments?

"You don't have to arrive until 11:30am. This is beautiful and allowed me to get a good night's sleep. Dean White begins the day with a short talk on the admissions process, when you should expect a desision, financial aid, etc. You then go to lunch. There are tables of 5 or 6 people with each seat being pre-assigned. They make sure that students from the same school do not sit together, and each table has a faculty member and 3rd or 4th year seated with interviewees. Lunch is buffet-style. After lunch, you go on the tour. Basically, if you want to see something, then tell the tour guide. They will take you there (unless you want to see the OR). Be sure to ask them questions. After the tour, you sit in the admissions office with a handful of 4th years. They are evaluating you. Do NOT stress about this. As long as you are not socially inept, then you're fine. They will approach you. Talk to them, talk to fellow interviewees (these might be your future classmates). Throughout this time (roughly 2pm until 4:30pm), you'll be swept away by both a student and a faculty member. The student interviews are closed file. They just want to get to know you and see if you'd be a good colleague. Faculty interviews depend on who you get, for each interviewer has a different style. Around 4:30pm, you're done." -Posted 10/14/2005 | Report Response
