"Adelphi has a unique interview format. There were people in my group and we met with a faculty member and a 4th year student. The only instruction we were given to to introduce ourselves, otherwise we all just talked for approx. 2 hours (had 1 break). At the end we met with 2 first year students for cookies and to answer any questions. Surprisingly, it was a pretty good experience and I enjoyed my groupmates. However, it is really tough to judge your own performance and I left feeling like I had no idea how I did." More from this Member | Report Response
