"I was interviewed by two retired members of the faculty. They were very nice people (and relatively famous), but I felt like I was only seen by one facet of the adcom." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I could have found out who was interviewing me ahead of time. I didn't know that the admissions office would tell me that." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I applied ED to UK, so I went in already knowing that this was my school of choice. I will be happy going here (I got in!!). I wish I had been interviewed by a younger member of the committee. Also, since I am non-trad, I thought that neither interviewer should have asked so much about my family, but since they can't ask if I am married...I guess that is ok. All in all, I am happy to be going to school here." Report Response
