What impressed you negatively?

"Some of the staff members aren't very friendly compared to other schools i've visited. The pop-essay, im not sure how to interpret it. Is it a way for them to determine if you actually wrote your personal statement? Because i think that undermines trust between student and faculty, or is it just another way for them to know you? Either case, i wrote really tiny and it took them forever to read my essay." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I decided to interview at this school because it looked as though other schools weren't taking an interest in me. Then when i got a bunch of other interviews i was seriously considering canceling my interview. When i got to Buffalo, the city, my first and lasting impression is that a lot of people are resentful pricks. However, the school and the faculty are awesome and they really like getting to know you. So this school moved from being at the bottom of my list to somewhere near the top." Report Response
