"This was my first interview, and it really put me at ease. The people are great, the interviews are really positive and they basically just want to get to know you better and see that you are a genuine person. One faculty interview in the AM, then lunch with a student around noon. The informational presentation is thorough, and you get a good sense of the two curricular pathways you can choose as a first year." Report Response
