What are your general comments?

"Two interviews, one with a 2nd year and one with the Dean of Admissions. Both were amazingly comfortable and very little "attacking" by the interviewers. Discussion was allowed to flow naturally from one topic to the next. My interview with the student was on a stool, which was a bit difficult to do because I was holding a folder and in a suit, so I couldn't really gesticulate as much as I would have liked. Student interview was 30 mins, the deans was scheduled for an hour. As my first interview, I was really appreciative of the atmosphere, and I was very much impressed with Case. Definately consider their new program, its worth a look. My interest level of Case went from a low 1st tier school on my list to competitive with any other school I am interviewing at. I felt a connection, and I think their emphasis on hands on learning and discussion really is the way of the future. Thanks Case!" Report Response
