What are your general comments?

"The day is divided up into two parts: the morning where you are not being evaluated and then a total immersion with admissions people. After the lunch with faculty and the tour, you sit in a room with fourth years and just chat. Hint: don't try too hard to impress them, you look dumb. The student interview is really really laid back, just be yourself. Same advice for the faculty interview, only he or she has all your information and can ask about grades etc. Big hint: look over your experiences you listed on your primary so you don't forget to mention it in the interview!" -Posted 09/24/2007 | Report Response
