What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"that there are lots of negative reviews on SDN but it's not as bad as most people make it out to be." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"it's as everyone says it is. dr. haight is great and he definitely has favorites. i was not a favorite, but i was conscious enough about that fact so as not to let it worry me too much. as he said, he doesn't vote anyway! it's strange though because i got a rather negative vibe from one of his favorites. ah well. anyways, i've been interviewed by three interviewers before so that didn't bother me, though i'd never had another person in on my interviews before. as others have complained, you reveal personal stuff, but that's ok, i don't think anyone really cares and if they "judge" you or whatever on it, they're looking into the wrong profession. in the end, i was accepted and it was a really difficult decision to turn them down because i did like the school a lot."
