What impressed you negatively?

"The unorganization. I'm from Cali there were four other students there that attended Howard for undergrad. When the associate dean came in to interview me he explained that I would be missing the tour b/c he had a meeting. Why he did not pick a Howard undergrad who has expereinced the school for the last four years instead so I could at least see the school still confuses me??? Then during the interview the Dr. kept answering his phone, he excused himself to pick something up from his secretary, then would sit down and be like umm continue... it was so disrespectful. I almost thought it was a test. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"First be prepared to fill out a silly green sheet that asks you a lot of questions you already filled out in your 2ndary. Your interview will be based off it. Second be prepared for unorganization they are really really bad in this aspect. Honestly everything, I am greatful for the opportunity to interview but if I knew it was going to be like that I would have just saved my hard earned money. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very unorganized. Be prepared for a day of chaos. As a bit of advice to those of you who are going on the interview take the time to really fill out your green sheets b/c the interview will be based on it and I heard from the students there they use it when it comes time for the AC to vote on you.
