What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

What are your general comments?

"I had a wonderful time at Touro. Although I thought that I would despise having to interview in a group, it turns out it's not half bad. Yes, group interviews shorten the amount of time that an interviewer spends getting to know you, and yes, you have to be quick with your responses. However, a group interview lets you see how other applicants act during their interview and how you compare to them. It also allows you time to re-group after answering a question. You don't have questions being fired at you constantly." Report Response
