What impressed you negatively?

"Not all the students were as outgoing as I expected, but then again, it was two days before their final joint exam, so it's understandable." -Posted 12/14/2005 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"30 minutes goes by a lot faster than you would expect. In fact, I only had about 20 minutes for my individual interview, and you probably only speak about 15 in your group interview. Know what you want to say, and know how to get to the point very quickly because you don't get a chance to ramble and eventually touch on the things that are important - you'll just run out of time. I didn't get to talk about an important part of my life because I ran out of time and wasn't as organized as I could have been." -Posted 12/14/2005 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviewers were fantastic. The group interview definitely was not as bad as I expected, but they do ask some questions to keep you on your toes - nothing difficult such as policy or ethics, but kind of asking about how you would handle a situation. I got the impression that they really want to know how well you think." -Posted 12/14/2005 | Report Response
