How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read SDN, did practice interviews, looked at my application." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Mix of PCL self-study with significant science lectures and 2 lab days a week. Seems a good balance of old and new. Fairly new facilities. Class of 60 is small enough that all the faculty seem to know all the students." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Location--it was freaking cold the day I interviewed, and a town of 50,000 in ND isn't exactly a cultural hotbed. Lots of opportunities to drink in the town, they tell me, not much else." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I'd get a ticket in the parking lot... the meters can be fed for 1 hour at a time, yet the interview is 45 minutes with 30 minutes of pre-interview stuff--a video and having your picture taking. So that added $15 onto the cost of applying." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Their setup seems to be to have one interviewer who acts very, very nice; one who acts actively dis-interested; and a neutral third interviewer who watches you the whole time to watch how you react." Report Response
