"like another student noted in one of the feedbacks below, most of the students didnt have it hard in life; also, we didn't get to talk to many students, and the tour was rushed." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"although interviews are scheduled ahead of time, there is a significant time gap between interviews; for example, some people had interviews that were 3-4 hours apart. there was nothing during that free time that was scheduled for us, so we were basically sitting around the waiting room reading magazines or talking to whoever was there. also, the interviews weren't all close to the admissions department; some students had to take school shuttles across campus. all that free time we had could have been used for a session on financial aid, or opportunities to talk to current students, etc." Report Response
