What impressed you negatively?

"They seem to have a little chip on their shoulder regarding reputation and US News' new ranking system (We were told multiple times that in the old ranking system, RWJMS was consistently in the top 10). But really, it's a great school, and anyone who visits can tell that right away" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"A short orientation is scheduled from 11am - 12pm, then a tour/lunch from 12-1pm. The whole thing seemed a little unorganized, but it was probably bc it was exam week and everyone was a little frazzled. Some people had interviews before; mine was scheduled for 3pm, on the other campus (about 5-10 minute drive). For out-of-state people w/o cars or anything to do, might want to look into how to get over there, if necessary (not many taxis around). For my first interviewing experience, I think I was really lucky -- my interviewer was really nice, the whole thing was very conversational, and even the scary "ethical questions" turned more into a discussion of what both of us thought. Overall, great experience!" Report Response
