What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That it really would be just as laid back as everyone said. They were having a beach-themed welcome back party for the students so we got leis, lol. My student interviewer was tougher than my faculty interviewer! Also, that not everyone gets the same interviews. Some people got two faculty interviewers and some people got one faculty interviewer and one student interviewer." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It seemed like everyone loved it there and they had a lot more to offer than you typically hear about when you think of Wright State. I know a lot of people think of it as a safety school but they really do have a lot of opportunities with research, traveling abroad, meeting physicians, etc. They were REALLY trying to sell the school."
