What impressed you negatively?

"Everything ran really late. This may have been because I was part of the first interview group of the year. People that were in interview groups hours after mine were interviewed before me because they didn't allocate enough time for the interview. Note.. if your interview is at 1pm and you know its going to take 2-3 hours, you are not going to make a 4:00 flight. (this wasn't the school's fault, applicants should have planned accordingly). We didn't really get a tour. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Ladies- wear flats. I took the Metro in from MD and the station is several blocks from the school. Other applicants that drove said parking was difficult. I was nervous about the math test but it wasn't difficult. Just remember to brush up on derivatives. I was accepted to this program and got my letter about 6 weeks later. Feel free to PM me if you have additional questions. " Report Response
