What are your general comments?

"nice enough school no doubt. There was a presentation in the morning, powerpoint. i thought this was a huge waste of time and gained nothing from it. you wait in a room with about the 10 other students whom you are interviewing with, and you can end up waiting there for about a half hour or so before the interview. there are 2 interviewers, student and teacher. the student is at lunch. she tried to ask me tough questions, and i wasnt quite sure of how she wanted me to act - was this a 'be yourself and act casual because you are talking with a student at lunch and they want to see how cool and friendly you can be" interview'' or was it a regular interview where they grill you with questions, and they try to get you into a false sense of security by placing you in the caf. In other words, the student was asking me regular interview questions, but at same time you are supposed to have a natural conversation with the student at lunch. I guess i wasnt sure of the angle the student was taking, and how i was supposed to respond and act. The teacher was nice enough. VERY short. Not sure how to take this. I asked a couple questions, but not too many. He only asked about 3 or so. I've got to agree with other comments on here, they don't go out of their way to wow you and entice you to come there. They do not make you individuallly feel unique or anything, and try to get you to come to the school. It was like the group i was with was interviewed as a whole, as opposed to being a day for me. Does this make sense?? email me with questions if you want. " Report Response
