"What impressed me most was that how organized the interview day was...everything started and fiished on time, as promised. Dr. Hinkley was the most laid back admissions dean I have seen so far, he made the process very simple and enjoyable. He explained how the whole process works and touched upon the most prominent aspects of the program and the new one at FAU. The day started at 9 AM and we were done by about 2PM. Tour guides took us to most places on the campus and lunch was good. Atlast something other than the cold sandwiches." Report Response
