What impressed you positively?

"Everything. I have never been to a school like this - everyone was really friendly, down to earth, and very happy there (I think 20 students came in to talk to us about how much they like the school). Small class size, great library and facilities, really nice and receptive administration. Like many applicants, i applied to state schools in new york and the private schools in nyc. Stony Brook impressed more than any other school that I have visited. Sure, it isn't new york city - but i think manhattan is very overrated and way too pricy to live the way that you could live in stony brook. Some students had houses on the water! It was seriously crazy how much this place rocked." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The student lounge was kind of run down, but it didn't seem like many people hung out there anyway." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The facility is gigantic. Note to the wise: be on your toes the entire day." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Great interview, lasting almost an hour and a half. It seemed as though the interviewer had specific questions he was required to ask. We would talk for a while pretty freely (conversational) until the interviewer would all of a sudden remember that he had to ask me one of those (required?) questions...then he did...then I answered...and then we would just continue talking. I couldn't really gauge what he thought about the interview at the end. I got in, though, so i guess it went ok!" Report Response
