"There were 4 interviewers this day. We arrived to a 30-40 minute Q&A session. The group was broken up and sent to their interviews(different interviewers for everyone). They usually schedule you to interview with two faculty members throughout the day. One person is open file and sits on the committee, the other is closed file and they may not be on the committee. In between the interviews there is an option financial aid session and student guided tour." Report Response
