What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Doesn't matter how early you arrive and sign-in. You get randomly picked for an interview. I was the first one to sign-in and the last to interview (45 min. wait)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviewer asked me about almost everything in my application, starting with the numbers (GPA and DAT) to hobbies and goals. Further into the interview, it became much more relaxed and it turned out that his son and I both played the same instruments and similar hobbies. Play on whatever peaks the interviewer's interest. If he/she is a hard-ass and you feel you're not getting anywhere, ask them questions about their personal life and they'll open up right away. At least it always worked for me." Report Response
