What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"For students coming from far away, it seems to ask alot of you, when basically you will arrive, see a talk, take a short tour and then wait for a while before having one interview. I wonder if phone interviews might be better for students from distant places, as the travel expenses can and do deter students from applying to many places." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviewer seemed tired, I think because 3 interviewers called in sick so he had to do alot of interviews that day. He seemed relaxed, and just had a few specific questions. I was somewhat surprised that he didn't ask me more questions, I asked him a few questions and we just kind of chatted for a while. I'm not sure if the fact that the interview seemed short was a good or bad sign. I came out of the interview with an ambiguous feeling." Report Response
