What impressed you positively?

"I was extremely impressed by my interviewer and I think she really made me walk away loving the school even more because she was such an amazing person. The facilities were excellent and very new and the students were all so active in the surrounding community. I just liked how much opportunity seemed to be available at the school. They have a flexible curriculum that lets you take off a year in the middle of your education if you want to do a masters or law degree or even some international volunteering. I was really impressed by everything the school has to offer its students." Report Response

"As with everything, I think if you go in there knowing yourself and why you are there, you'll always be fine -it's just a matter of being yourself and feeling comfortable to express that -no one is out to get you or give you a hard time, at least not in my experience or that of most of my friends. It was overall a very nice conversation and I really enjoyed learning about the amazing things my interviewer had accomplished in her career in medicine throughout the course of the interview, along with learning about everything RWJ has to offer. It was a very laid back and pleasant experience -I hope I get in!" Report Response
