"I already knew about the three campuses. Pick Morgantown unless you're sure you want one of the others. You can switch any time before your third year, but another student has to agree to switch with you. Someone reportedly paid $10,000 to switch to Morgantown." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was surprized that all four of the people interviewing were out-of-staters. The interviews were at 1:00, 1:30, 2:00, and 2:30 and you got to leave right after your interview. Before the interview, we had a tour given by two third year students followed by lunch. We were told that other than EDP acceptances, no acceptances have been given yet this year. Although it is rolling admission, large batches of acceptances usually go out around the holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentines Day, and Easter). Don't worry if you get waitlisted because it may just be that they are waiting to get a large pool of completed applications before giving out any acceptances." Report Response
