"Tell me about your family."
"Can you explain your research?"
"What do you like about Columbia?"
"What is your family life like?"
"nothing- he was so nice!"
"Read columbia website, reviewed application"
"the student body and the faculty are bar none the most enthusiastic people i have run into at any interview thus far"
"the campus and the facilities are not all that modern, although i'm sure the hostpital was well equipped"
"relax!!!! everyone is so nice and they really try to put you at ease"
"The interview day was pretty unorganized and laid back... basically we hung around in the reception room for a good part of the morning just talking to students that dropped by. although not very well put togehter, it was a great opportunity to get to know students not necessarily associated with the admissions committee. I wished the tour covered more- i would have liked to see more of the hostpital. Overall, though, a great day... my interviewer was so kind and laid back. If you are headed to columbia for an interview, prepare, but then relax, it will be great!"
