10. Can you describe the archetypal student for your school?
We look for someone who is energetic and looking to apply those energies to develop professionally and pursue excellence in a field that excites them. We do not want to push students in to certain areas that seem "hot" and may help our rankings if they pay high salaries. In the short run that would be nice, but in the long run in may not be sustainable as either the graduate's career satisfaction would be low, or our energies would constantly need to be redirected to new industries. Rather, we want the student to identify what they are passionate about—and then we can help them achieve success in that field. The student must also have the ability to think critically and communicate to others in a professional manner. These skills need not be perfected, of course, before they enroll here. It is our job to aid in development in these areas. But we do want to see evidence of some core strength that can be built upon through our curricular experience.
