What impressed you positively?

"The nature of the interviewers, and of course, Dr. Haight. He was pretty laid back, quite informative, and anxious to answer any questions. He has a great sense of humor and made the day enjoyable. The student giving the tour was pretty cool as well, scenery was nice. They were able to answer specific questions I had quite well. Contrary to a couple of posts, the interviewers were nothing but respectful- I also interviewed with two other applicants-they were awesome! Get to know each other, it makes the process much easier!"

What are your general comments?

"Basically enjoyable. I believe I interviewed with a superb group of individuals whom were all conversive. A word to the wise-get to know your fellow applicants, that is key when interview time rolls around. It lowers the stress level incredibly!! And when interviewing, formulate your answer before you spit it out-think about it, keep it to point and don't ramble!! JUST RELAX, it's gonna go well!! " Report Response
