"The interview set up . . I got lost searching for one of my interviewers room and it turned out to be in the most obscure location. I had to ask three people to help me find my way there.

What are your general comments?

"Not at all stressful interms of the questions they ask- pretty mcuh straight out of your application. Makes sure you know about their unique style of curriculum, since they were one of the first schools to adopt it. Also, make sure you ask to know where you are going before you head to interviewer offices. I got lost. Besides that it wasn;t to bad, but i came away with a bland feeling . . . not that amazing, but certainly not bad at all. " Report Response
