What was the most difficult question?

"The most difficult question was, "If you were in a group of people and someone said something offensive, how would you handle it?" The ethical questions they tend to ask are ones that are realistic situations, rather than euthanasia or anything, and they want to 'see you think on your feet'." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"newspapers, SDN, went over my personal statement; I didn't think it was really the kind of thing you could 'prepare' for per se. **They do indeed administer a 10 min. essay on a topic; ours was on our favorite family vacation.**" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The students, interviewers and admissions staff are so NICE! The atmosphere is one of collaboration and cameraderie. It was really nice to see." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Good interview experience. I was impressed with the social atmosphere. They tried to make it as painless as possible. My interviewer actually said, you've done the hard work to get here, so we don't think this needs to be stressful. UB is a really nice place." Report Response
