What are your general comments?

"Make sure you have breakfast before you get there, and bring something to read, just in case. Once you check in, its really a waiting game for your interviewers. They will come out and take you to either their office or a room in the admissions suite. From there, depending on your interviewer, you'll either have a short or long interview. One of mine was 60+ minutes, because we had a lot to talk about, and the other was just about 35 mins (the std, they say). Afterwards, they took us for a tour around the school, which is housed in building that are linked so you don't have to venture outside during the winter, and then gave us a voucher for lunch. The cafeteria is nice, but bring some cash, b/c the voucher is only $5. I really liked the school because its students are cohesive and driven, and since its a graduate-only institution, there aren't the distractions that may be there elsewhere." Report Response
