What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That all of the prospective students would be in a room together throughout the 3 hr interview process. There were 12 of us being interviewed and there were two groups of interviewers. We were picked from the group one by one. This was strange because you saw the other students as they came out of the interview... some happy some sad." Report Response
