What impressed you positively?

"Everyone was super nice. Someone else commented that they must be putting something in the water, and I think it's true : ) The relationship between the students and faculty is very relaxed. The students all said that they work very hard, especially the first year, but people was still very positive and there was a "we are all in this together" attitude, fostered by the school." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing really. This was my first interview though, so I don't have much to compare it to." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview day goes from 10:30-5:00. Be prepared with questions to ask, because everyone you meet will ask you if you have questions, and unless you have a whole bunch, you will run out of questions to ask halfway through the day. There is a 30 min student interview and a 60 min faculty interview. Both are just conversation. They make it clear that they do a minimum number of interviews, so if they interview you, they already decided that they want you at the school. You would really have to mess up to not get accepted.
