"Nothing I can think of...I was well-prepared." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Knowing a lot about the curriculum, I had high expectations, yet the entire experience was still more than I expected. I was lucky and had both interviews on campus. Some students had to travel from place to place. So, be prepared. One interview lasted 45-50 minutes, and the other lasted 70 minutes. Having an interview go long can be good, but it might make you late for the next meeting. Everyone was understanding, and it didn't seem to count against me. The interviewers DO have access to your file. However, some may choose NOT to look at it. Although both went extremely well, I thought the interview went better for the person that had a chance to review my file. So, be ready to start from scratch." Report Response
