What impressed you positively?

"people are generally very friendly in Madison. I got lost in the building of my interview and asked a nurse for directions. She turned around and took me through a couple of hallways and up not one, but two flights of stairs and straight to the door and wished me luck. wow. The girl directing me to the bus line was also very helpful and friendly. overall, didn't seem to share the views of the cabbie/aspiring grad student (see below)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"1)wisconsin is very, very far from california. 2)had a cabbie/aspiring film grad student with an anti-immigration slant, (that didn't make me feel very welcome- i'm korean). he also said, ''these immigrants bring down the education standards of america...so i like to support businesses that require high-skilled labor (i guess so immigrants won't come) and not the businesses that need lower skilled labor. i said, ''oh, that's kinda funny coming from a guy who drives a taxi.'' silence. take that. f*cker." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"that my student host would not have an extra towel, i'm hoping i have a rich roomie because so far my student hosts (at another host as i type) live in spartan conditions-most noticeably the absence of furniture-he gave me his bed (and only pillow) and slept on the floor-he was pretty awesome like that." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"it was a very long day, get lots of sleep the night before. i was the only californian and the only asian in a group of 20. other applicants were nice people. student interview was with two interviewers and 4 students, the only purpose is to see if you're normal. one interviewer said that everyone always sits across the table when they can sit right next to them, thought it would have been interesting.
