What are your general comments?

"I arrived the night before and stayed with a student. If you want to do this, call up admissions and ask more than a week in advance. The information they are supposed to send for your interview may get sent out late, and then it will be too late to arrange. The interviews are very conversational, they barely asked me any questions. The first person hadn't read my file, asked me a few questions about myself, told me a lot about Syracuse. The second guy liked my file, so it was pretty low pressure. They didn't ask any ethical or challenging questions at all." Report Response
