"day starts around 11:00 in a conference room w/ ~40 interviewees.. deans and students come and talk to everyone.. there are small sandwiches and snacks to eat but nothing big; very relaxed. go downstairs w/ a student for a quick student interview--this is basically a chance to see what the students are like and to ask questions.. go on a student tour w/ group of ~8 people.. then interview somewhere on campus around 2-2:30.. interview is conversational. then back for day wrap-up--they serve cookies and soda, and you can personally introduce yourself to the admissions director if you want--she's very nice.. overall, very easy interview experience" Report Response
