What are your general comments?

"UConn has a wonderful program. The interview day was a little different than normal (I'm a reapplicant) in that the admissions office was a bit disorganized due to remodeling. Arrived in the morning and was shown to a classroom with all the other applicants. Went around the room and had to introduce ourselves, talk about oyr education background, and had to share a little story. Thinking of a "good one" was the most stressful part of the day! Dr. Sanford gave an overview of the program. Half of the group then left for their faculty interviews and teh rest of stayed. Dr. Sanford asked us to discuss the problems we addressed in our applications. Was low key. Then had a faculty interview and a student interview. Then had a tour and lunch with 2 first years. Day ended earlier than usual. " Report Response
