What are your general comments?

"Everyone talks about how the interviews at Madison are a piece of cake. Well, my interviewer was relentless. We didn't shoot the shit or make any sort of small talk. It was all business. Not that I hadn't thought of answers to his questions, I just didn't think It was going to be that type of interview. People complain about the campus, the weather, or Wisconsin itself, but they couldn't be further from reality. The campus is very nice. It has plenty of green space and is situated on a beautiful lake. And yes, Wisconsin has what you would call 'seasons.' That means sometimes it is cold and sometimes its not, deal with it or go to school in Cali. I really liked it at UW." Report Response
