How did you prepare for the interview?

"I read SDN interview feedback, and I read and re-read the literature and website for UPitt. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The faculty was incredibly friendly and knowledgable about their school. The students were friendly and seemed quite happy and, for lack of a better description, NORMAL. My interviewers were engaging, pleasant and did a great job of conveying the school's interest in me as a person, not just a set of numbers. The campus and facilities are very impressive, and the town seems like a great place to live. I also appreciated the continental breakfast, although I was too paranoid about my suit to consume anything other than apple juice." Report Response

"Absolutely nothing." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"No surprises here." Report Response

What are your general comments?
