How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, previous interviews. I already had two interviews at that point, so that diffused some of the stress." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Their attitude: they don't try to hide the fact that it will be a demanding curriculum, but they spent a lot of time going over the types of extra-curricular and fun activities that students participate in. The student community seems both involved and fun-loving." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Without getting in too much detail... Sometimes it's hard to find good help. One of the students was pretty rude to me when I wanted to use the bathroom before the interview. Even though I'm a guy and it only takes me 30 seconds, he claimed that things were simply planned too tightly so I wasn't permitted." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They say check-in is at 12:30 and the day starts at 1:00, but actually things start at 12:30. If I had known I would have checked in earlier (I was sitting in the parking lot) and had time to use the bathroom." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Besides the initial issue with the student assistant I mentioned, the interviews went pretty well. Both the student and faculty interviewers were conversational, neither asked particularly off-the-wall questions. All are pretty relevant to what they should know about an applicant. The cookies were good." Report Response
