What impressed you positively?

"students seemed very positive and overall i would have liked the school had my interview not been so bad." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"my open file interview was very intense and lasted over 90 minutes. the interviewer took every opportunity to probe me- and when he felt it wasn't working, he took the opportunity to get into my personal life and express his opinions about that, which i found very frusterating and inappropriate. I was told that I wasn't altruistic enough for the school- making why they would have interviewed me in the first place. However, the closed file interview when very well, but seemed unimportant in comparison to the longer, earlier interview" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish i had known how intense the interviews were know to be. i later realized that many people had had similar experiences there, but i was not expecting the intensity of it. whatever you do, don't take what your interviewer is saying to personally and don't get too frusterated. maybe other people don't need this advice, but it would have helped me."
