At the school

2

What was the style of the interview?

One-on-one

What type of interview was it?

Closed file

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"Summarize the article you just read (on HDL). In responding this question, they just want to see how well you can summarize to see if you would fit in well with their PBL setting." Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"Do you think you're a leader? Tell me about an experience where you demonstrated your leadership skills." Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"Do you have any questions for us? This was a bit hard because I think I had already taken 30 minutes and one of the interviewers seemed to be having indigestion (he ran out of the room after 5 minutes). If they had been more receptive I think my feeling of it all would have been more warm. I ended up getting in so their untalkative personalities didn't have much to do with the school's decision anyway." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Tell me something about you that we don't already know." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"I think since the interviewers were following a formatted question-form, they tended to repeat questions that had already been answered. Similar to what someone already posted, they asked me to explain a situation where I helped moderate a situation with conflicting leaders. I had answered this and two other questions with my first answer so I simply referred to my previous answer and emphasized how it answered the pertinent question." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, school website" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The school is only 2 yrs old so the facilities are brand new. In addition, students have a lot more say in terms of making suggestions or changes to the curriculum." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The library seemed pretty empty (though I hear most students study at home or in the cafeteria). The two faculty members who interviewed me also seemed very impersonable (see "Question2")" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"nothing" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"As expected, the interview lasted from 8:30AM through 1:30 PM. The staff was extremely willing to help and overly friendly. Although school was out and there were no students to talk to, they brought in two local first year students to meet with us for lunch." Report Response
