What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"NYU says that there is one 1-on-1 interview and then a "chat" with an admissions staff member where our questions may be answered. It's actually just a more conversational second interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The admissions staff should really put together some sort of presentation about the school admissions process/statistics/curriculum/what sets it apart from other schools/etc, and not have us sitting in a room for two hours waiting to be called for two different interviews. They should also consider doing interviews later in the interview day (after the tour) so we may have more questions for them during the Q&A session." Report Response
