What was the most interesting question?

"Can't remember" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Interviewer commented on my being honest when I said that I had consumed alcohol in the last year...I was really worried and not exactly sure how to respond to that. None of the other ones were extremely remarkable." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I went online and looked up some basics about the Adventist church, and made sure to go through the entire website. I also prepared some questions that I specifically wanted to know about the community of Loma Linda, and I think those went over well." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Loma Linda is a close knit community, even for students like myself who aren't Adventist. This fact was mentioned in my interview and it is pretty true. The professors here are extremely motivated to help their students learn, much more so than almost all the profs at UCSB. In addition, this school is great for anyone who wants to go into the mission field. The school will even pay for up to half of the expenses encountered if we want to go on summer missions in Adventist Hospitals abroad." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"My interview was really disorganized because I didn't have an interview scheduled on an interview day. The prof who was supposed to interview me apparently forgot, and they had to call her at home to get her to come to the school and interview me. Thankfully she was really nice to me after that and the interview went well. Also, they didn't have anyone to show me any part of the campus and I had to walk around with a tiny map and try to figure out what buildings I would be having class in." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"One thing that comes to mind is that the students here aren't all Adventist, and I thought that they mostly were going to be. I think I'm one of around 20 or so non-adventists in our class. Oh, also Adventists aren't all vegeterians and lots of them drink coffee so don't make any ignorant comments." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Was the most disorganized of all of my interviews, but the disorganization isn't representative of the quality of the school." Report Response
