What impressed you positively?

"Dr. Hunt's lunchtime talk about the school was inspiring and informative." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The day isn't so tightly organized. It wasn't a big deal to me, but it's something they could work on. For example, they didn't have students lined up in advance to come talk to us at lunch even though it was on the schedule. Instead, they dragged a few people in as they could find them. Also, they have the talks scheduled when some people have interviews so those interviewees miss out." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I didn't know anything about their new College's program. It's a mentorship thing that they are trying out and seems like a major benefit to students." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, the day was less stressful than I expected. The admissions staff and Dr. Hunt were very forthcoming about the whole process and the interview felt more like a conversation than an interrogation. I preferred this interview to others where I spent the whole time talking about myself and my strengths and weaknesses. Now I'm crossing my fingers that I get accepted." Report Response
