What are your general comments?

"Overall, I thought NSU was amazing. My interview was really short--15 mins.. while most others were taking 20-25 mins.. so that kind of worried me... Eventhough the questions they asked were pretty straight forward, I guess I was just really nervous bec. it was my first interview and NSU is one of my top choices... After walking out of the interview I didn't think I was very stellar or anything... i started thinking about all the things I could have and should have said during the interview... but I guess I wasn't that bad after all because I got accepted :) Oh and just for your info, there is no need to bring a portfolio type thing because they provide you with a porfolio and a pen...just letting you know that so you dont end up carrying two portfolios all day like I had to do :) The dean is AWESOME!!! He really makes you feel welcomed and at home...He has a great personality. The dress code/attendance policy is NOT BAD AT ALL!!! People scared me so much about that before going to NSU... it honestly isnt that bad at all... " Report Response
