What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"They asked about a class I had called race, gender, and sexuality...just curious as to what it was." Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"They asked me at the end of the interview if there was anything they should know about me that they didn't ask. When you go to your interview, you should have a few points that you want to bring up that let them know something about you that you feel is important. This was the time when I brought these up." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"They asked me about fishing. I mentioned it as one of my hobbies and the interviewers told me about how great the bluefish and stripers were when in season. This actually took almost half of my interview time. I think they did this to put me at ease. It was something I had no problem talking about and it showed they did want to get to know the person, not just the student or volunteer or worker." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Begin at an early age and take us up through now...who/what were your influences...what made you the person we see here today?" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"This web site, UNE web site, looked over my app" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"After talking with a current student, I was very impressed with how the students are there to help eachother. I want to attend a medical school where you and your classmates work together to get through classes. From the converstation I had with the student, it seemed as though all of the students enjoy going here and all get along fairly well. Second years treat the first years very well and are willing to help a ton. After all, who better to assist those coming in than those who just did it?" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"If your flying in here like I had to, check with your hotel to see if they have any deals with car rental companies. I flew into Boston had a big problem with my car rental company trying to charge me more than my quoted rate. When I got to my hotel (Hampton Inn in Saco) I found out that I could have gotten my rental car from Enterprise for $15/day through Hampton Inn. And I think they waive the 21-24 underage fee. That would have saved me a bunch of money. Also, if you do stay at the Hampton Inn, make sure you have them give you directions from there to UNE. They have a way that is shorter and easier than UNE gives you." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, the interviewers made me feel very comfortable. This was my first interview and I feel it went very well. I am excited to hear if I get in, because I think this is where I want to go. The professors that interviewed me were very friendly. They seemed like the type of guys who would go out for drinks with you after class or come over on sunday to watch a football game. They were real people and they treated you like you mattered to them. They were genuinely interested in who you are and left me with a very positive feeling about UNE. If even half of the teachers are like them, then those who get into UNE are a lucky group." Report Response
