"Two-year LDS mission to Finland...tell me about that." Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"What do you do for fun/relax? (Are you serious? I came all this way for someone to ask me what I do for fun. I thought it was a joke. I wanted a challenge, not a freebie)." Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"See ''interesting question''. This one was fun. My response was that there are all levels of altruism. If you help another and feel good about it, then good for you. But when a mother gives her life for her child, I don't see how that is selfish. Is not life the most precious thing we have?...In any case the DO who asked it was cool about agreeing its not an easy question and we talked about it as a group at the end. " Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"DO: In your essay, you talk about altruistic behavior. I had another student tell me there is no such thing because any act to help another is meant to make the giver feel better about themselves, thus creating a selfish desire. How do you feel about that perspective?" Report Response

"same" Report Response

"the norm" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Don Haight, what a stud. I don't care what you think of the school or the facilities, that man will make you feel good about yourself. He was a stud." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Eh, I could be picky and say ''lack of info on rotations, match lists, etc..but honestly, they had the info i wanted and you can find/talk to others to get what you need. Most students sound like they need their hand held while interviewing. Don't be a baby. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"You've already read this by now, so I'll throw in some things for fun. Kosher food is pretty dang good. The turkey wrap they gave was excellent. The day is how everybody says it will be. The group interview was cake. Wait your turn, give a thought-out answer and listen to your fellow students answer. The info sessions were boring but thats what you get. I interviewed on Tues Nov 13 and just got the email of acceptance today Nov 16. I don't care what you say, that quick of a response scores high marks in my book. Wait to judge the school til you get inside the buildings. " Report Response
