"UConn class is only 40 students large, very nice. They have a very high rate of ppl who go on to specialize" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My UConn visit was very positive, UConn impressed me a lot. Factoring out the location, their board scores, reputation, and success in sending students off to specialize is very impressive. The faculty is also VERY nice, and they tell you straight up that the interview is supposed to be a way for them to represent you, not to judge you. Basically, they're looking for reasons to confirm that you should be accepted, not reasons why they're too good for you or reasons why they shouldn't accept you. " Report Response
