What impressed you positively?

"The interviewers had both read my file and so it was a lot easier to talk to them. They asked really specific questions, so it was clear that they had really read it. They were really easy to talk to and really positive about their school. They didn't try to trick me at all.Everyone was extremely friendly. The financial aid talk was frighteningly honest. The administration is great and really tailors things to your interest and provides $$ to go abroad for summer research. No elitism. Broad curriculum. " Report Response
