What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview. Glad it wasn't stressful! There were 6 other applicants that I met in the morning during a short "getting to know you" session with the dean. We all went our separate ways for two one-on-one 45 min. interviews (1 faculty, 1 student), but we were together again for the tour/lunch/PBL session (doesn't count as part of interview). I was impressed by the attention the Dean and Asst. Dean of Student Affairs gave to everyone as an individual. One woman in our group had a short (10 min.) interview with a faculty member because a pipe burst. The Dean met with her in the afternoon and interviewed her to make sure she got everything across that she wanted to." Report Response
