"This was my first interview as I applied very late in the process, but it ended up being a very positive experience. The staff and interviewers were interesting and friendly and seemed genuinely interested in my opinions and experiences. What I was most impressed with was the students and how happy they seemed here (unlike other schools I visited). Although I decided to stay in a hotel, I found the student welcoming committee meeting the night before to be very informative and helpful. Also, a good tip is to rent a car, it's actually cheaper than taking taxis to and from the airport and less stressful than having to rely on another person." Report Response
