What are your general comments?

"You have to be there at 7:30 in the morn, they give you breakfast as soon as you get there. We then moved over to the new research building where the dean spoke with us about the school. there we found out our grps for the grp interview and who we would be talking with for our ind. interview. The first interview is a panel interview with you and 2 other applicants. There were 3 interviewers and they ask questions, some they put to the whole grp others they put only to a single person. That lasts for about 1 hr or so. the last 15 min is a problem solving session with your grp. The second interview is one on one with a dean, you get to see your file and update it with new info. and then they ask you the standard interview questions." Report Response
