What impressed you positively?

"The lack of stress at PSU was remarkable. From the first minute you're there, they foster a friendly environment. Students would walk by and ask if we had questions, or just to wish us luck. Interviews were very conversational and friendly. We ate lunch with students who were almost demanding that we ask more questions. They wanted to leave nothing hidden." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Interviews were kind of short. It was hard to believe they got to know me better in a short conversation. One of the interviewers never showed up, so they had to find a replacement (who actually was probably better than the original one anyway). They did more hospital tour stops than college stops (didn't see lecture hall, they didn't mention anything research-related HMC is famous for)" Report Response
