What impressed you negatively?

"The tour was very disjointed and fairly uninformative. For the most part the students were good at answering the questions we had, but they didn't have any sort of planned tour. It was more like, "Here's this place. This is what we do here. Umm...where else do you guys want to go and see?" Right." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I was only going to be there for 15 mins in my interview. Pretty darn short." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was really freaked out about my interview only lasting 15 mins. and I thought to myself, "This could be really bad, or really good. Either they already wanted to accept me, or they only continued to the interview because they offered already and they were ready to reject me. Or I just really said something stupid in the interview (which, I know I didn't)." My friend called me a few days later and said several kids in his class had 10-15 min interviews, so if your interview is short too, no worries. You're in good company. ;-)" Report Response
