What are your general comments?

"overall, the interview was SO laid back. the faculty interviewer just wanted to talk basically and what was really great was that she didnt have to ask me if i had any questions for her...my questions all came out as part of our discussion. One thing that I learned was that any problems students had with the PIL program were due to issues a couple years ago and since then there have been no problems with it. In fact, the students I talked to in IFM told me that I should apply to PIL if not just to try it out b/c you can always switch out but you can't switch in to it. Read up on the different tracks for the first two years because it is definitely a good discussion point during both interviews." Report Response
