What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The MARC train from DC is a total commuter train. Your interview could end around 2, but the first train to DC is not until 3:30, and it doesn't stop in College Park. If you hope to end early, I might drive, or if you take the train, bring a book." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interview begins early, around 8:30. You sign in, and they orient you as to where you interview is. They can be kind of a walk, so you may need to make time to get where you need to go. Student schedules vary. The lunch with students is very informal and a good opportunitiy to pick their brains about housing, cars, etc. They all defend the traditional grading system, at least in the interview day. I had one interview with a faculty member, and one with a fourth year medical student, and they asked me very different questions. " Report Response
