What impressed you positively?

"Nearly everything. The students, the location, the curriculum, the residence hall--I would be ecstatic if I got accepted here." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There was no talk by the dean of admissions or any faculty member. It gave me the impression that they didn't feel the need to impress us (which, I have to admit, is true, at least for me)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They updated their curriculum about 10 years ago. I thought they had an entirely lecture-based system, but in fact they combine lectures with small grouo sessions." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I really was blown away by this school, and I hope that I am accepted. There was a lot of down time with the other interviewees (there were 23 of us on that day), which was okay, but it gets tiresome to talk with people about their application/interviews/etc after awhile. It was great that we were able to sit in on a class and see the dorms, and there was a free lunch. Overall, I was extremely pleased." Report Response
