What impressed you positively?

"The Queen Lane campus seems small, which is nice because I imagine you won't be running all over the place during your first two years. The facilities look nice, even if they're not state-of-the-art." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"My interview was at Hahnemann at the same time as the optional PIL information session was going on at Queen Lane. So I wasn't happy about missing that session, and I also felt that there was no wrap-up to the day." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My student interview was during lunch and lasted maybe 20 minutes. He was very personable and it was more like a chat than anything but I was still nervous. My faculty interview was at Hahnemann after lunch and it lasted maybe 10 minutes. He was nice and although he asked me a few questions that were clearly designed to test my response to situations where there is no easy answer, he didn't grill me and he accepted it when I gave an honest "I don't know.""
