What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I had a late interview, so I pretty well expected that I would be interviewing for a waitlist position, which did not bother me in the least since I really want to go there and wanted to give myself any shot possible of getting in. However, there were some other applicants who were quite upset at not knowing that they were interviewing for a wait list spot. They wished that they had been told this beforehand. I can see their point. Plane tickets are not cheap and some of us had to miss class to interview. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a really good day. I am not sure if the interviews are open file or closed file. One interviewer told me that they had not reviewed my file, but I kind of got the impression that she had access to it. Another interviewer was surprised by a comment that I made about my application and told me that when she was reviewing my stuff, that she did not have that piece of information. I am pretty certain that the student interviewer had a closed-file interview. " Report Response
