    I have been working at Furman University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Studying at Furman is a rewarding and enriching experience. The faculty and staff are incredibly helpful and flexible. I would recommend this school to anyone.

    Cons

    The small school atmosphere sometimes feels a little high school. Greek life is not strong or prevelenthere so if that's something you're looking for-look elsewhere.

    Admissions Counselor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Furman University (Greenville, SC) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied, then was contacted by email to schedule a Skype interview. After the Skype interview, I was contacted by phone to schedule an on-campus interview. The on-campus interview consisted of a whole day of meetings and interviews with various campus groups, including the Admissions leadership team, all the counselors, and all of the Admissions staff. I had to give a presentation to everyone I met with that day, a room of about 30 people. I also toured the facilities in the departments I'd be recruiting students for, and had individual meetings with faculty. The great thing was that the person who had the job last took me on the tour and was available for me to ask questions. I was able to get a really good perspective on the true day-to-day functions of the position.
