What impressed you positively?

"I was impressed by how much everyone seemed to really enjoy the city and the school. My interview was really fun actually because the professor that interviewed was light-hearted, dynamic, very personable and seemed to have an underlying solid sense of humor. Finally, I was also impressed with the dean's candid honesty and thoughtfulness during his presentation." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The cost of the school (even though I had already done research and had guessed accurately, but I guess that I had hoped that tuition would have been miraculously cut in half) also the cost of living in the Boston (though it isn't significantly higher than where I am now)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I discovered that what we were doing in our interviews and what the admissions office was doing in their presentations and tours was very very similar in nature. Everyone was trying to sell themselves to the other side, we were trying to convince the admissions people that we were worthy of being accepted and they were trying to sell the school to us. It's kind of an interesting dynamic when you look at it that way and it also greatly reduced my stress level when I realized what was occurring." Report Response
