How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read SDN interview feedback, SDN threads. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"PBL is great for some people. Building is new and surrounding area is nice. Great beaches nearby. OMM lab is great. Admissions folks are very nice." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"My PBL group wasn't very focused. Library is sparse; online access and copies of required texts are there, not much else. Nagging thought that PBL was chosen to keep costs down rather than because of the quality of education. 9-5 dress code of shirt/tie for men, business attire for women is enforced." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"To use the phone by the door rather than to follow a student into the controlled-access door. Security doesn't like it if you do the latter." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Dr. Krueger gave a bizarre wrap-up of PBL in the afternoon... but overall, it's a good place. You should be able to figure out if PBL is a good match for you by the end of the interview day. Also, renting a car is ~$50 vs. $70-$140 for airport shuttles." Report Response
