What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That there were only two interviewees that day, also, they don't tell you if you'll be having one or two interviews, or what time they will be, ahead of time. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall the school grounds seem kind of average, but the students and staff seem happy. The interviewer was tough, but good. I think it ended up going pretty well, he just wanted to hear reasons for the answers I was giving. I would bring a book or newspaper to read in the waiting room, because you may be waiting there for a while between interviews. Albany is a pretty small, run-down, old industrial city, but rent is very cheap, and if you have access to a car and enjoy being outdoors, there is no better region to be in. The Berkshires and Catskills are close by, and Montreal and NYC are only a train ride away." Report Response
