What are your general comments?

"The whole day was absolutely amazing. From the moment I walked in, everyone was nice. I think the best thing is just to be yourself. They have SO MUCH information about you already that they can tell if you aren't being honest. My interview was a conversation instead of an interrogation. I felt like I was able to make a genuine connection with the interviewer, in turn allowing me a better chance to present myself. The students all seem very happy with many stopping by the office in between classes. Dr. Hinckley is very personable as is the rest of the admissions office. By far, I believe it was the best interview I've ever given. Before the interview day, the University of Miami was my first choice. It was reassuring to leave the campus with an even stronger conviction that they are my first choice." Report Response
