What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

What are your general comments?

"After interviewing and learning all about the school, I can definitely see myself as a student at Finch. The students were very nice and encouraging, as were the admissions staff and interviewers. I was very nervous in my first interview (with a professor), but I loosened up with my second interview (with a 4th year MD/PhD student). Also, I can deal with the ABCDF grading system and living in the middle of nowhere for 2 years before moving to downtown Chicago. I had a very positive experience, and I am very excited at the possibility of attending Finch. " Report Response
